Marcia,me aware that Potters Council has a mentoring program.When we enroll we do get an oppurtunity to avail this mentoring programme.
My suggestion is for online e - course where there will be a class / group,whereas in Mentoring its one to one.Forsure doubts can be cleared ,but invariably thru e courses we can learn many concepts and divide eg from : Beginner course/Intermediate and further on.
Modules could be set up.
Further its just a food for thought.Thru this learning process we could be able to explore more,thru sharing in this kind of platform.I did mentioned it could be on chargeable basis.
I jus made it few weeks back..took utmost a week's time to dry up.Kept it an open area,What i did was" upside down" too. it helped to dry faster.The colour of the molds too changes,becomes more whiter after drying,Thats my experience.
