The stage is set and the lights are primed for the Simon Leach workshop in Snohomish, WA May 6-9th. I have sent email back and forth with many of the students and everyone is getting excited. My team has made all the arrangements now it is time to execute!
For all the students I have a cool surprise for you when you arrive and I hope you all like it, I would. Simon is set to arrive the weekend before so he will be well rested and ready to teach. They are long days of sitting at the wheel for everyone so please come prepared to work hard and stay hydrated with a water bottle. We have a water cooler for you to refill often and drink…I will be reminding everyone often of this.
I wanted to give everyone that reads my blog a sneak peek of something that may get big and out of control. We are going to have a public lecture and Q&A session with Simon on Tuesday May 7th at Bruning Pottery starting at 6PM. Simon has prepared some slides and will take some questions from the attendees. There are also going to be a small supply of Simon’s new book for sale where you can get it signed by him; I doubt there will be many left so if you want one arrive and go straight to the gallery to pick one up. There will be some light refreshments and an introduction to Bruning Pottery given by Larry to talk about their 30 years in the business. We anticipate that we could have between 10 and 100 people coming…I know a big spread because we simply do not know. It may be standing room only so come prepared for anything. More information will be posted here in the next few days, so check back to see.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am for the event. Can’t Wait to meet all of the participants!
