"As an artist I'm concerned about every artist's survival; the more information we share, the greater our success. I've taught this workshop since 1988 – every new session offers me the opportunity to update and streamline my information and business procedures. Consignment laws are important. Arizona's existing laws protect artists but they aren't well known or enforced. I often encounter galleries or craft shops that are ignorant of the state consignment laws or choose to ignore them. I want to educate every artist and encourage all of us to require galleries to honor these consignment laws." (Click link to Artist Legal Issues)
Workbook, printouts, reference and sources $15.
This workshop uses mostly reclaimed materials.

Mug Mania – 6 hours
We all need small gifts several times a year; thinking of you, just-because, birthdays, anniversaries,
thank you gifts – and people value hand crafted gifts. Let’s collaborate with mugs you personalize!
I’ll throw mugs of high quality stoneware clay on my potter’s wheel and trim them. You arrive while the clay mug is workable and either carve or add designs with more clay. When you’ve finished adding your special touch I’ll pull and attach a handle. We both sign the bottom of the mug. You have professionally made mugs – by an older-than-dirt Tucson Clay Artist – that you’ve personalized! Workshops include other fascinating, enjoyable people. I personally invite only people I enjoy – and I enjoy watching my varied friends and contacts interact.
Do you prefer private sessions for those meditative creative moods? Add $5. per hour.
