Free Josh Copus workshop in Charlotte!The February teaching tour continues with a trip down to Queens University of Charlotte on the 26th and 27th.
This is free and open to the public. Come on out and say hello.
We will be demonstrating some pottery techniques and I’ll be bringing the brick factory.
Should be a great time for all.

Just wrapped up a great 2 day workshop and lecture at Florida State College in Jacksonville. Thanks to @cottrellart for inviting me and Liz and all the folks for treating me so well. It’s been a blast.
Thanks to @trevortdunn and @stephenheywood and all the students from UNF for hanging.
I went surfing, collected shells, and toured the awesome facilities at UNF and FSCJ.
It’s happening down in Jacksonville!
It’s been real Florida, thanks for warming me up, but it’s time to hightail it back to my mountains.

I just finished up a whirlwind 5 days at Florida Atlantic University. We loaded, fired, unloaded, and cleaned the work from 2 kilns. Only one of which made it successfully to temperature… buts that’s how you learn!
I demonstrated and talked a bunch and shared multiple image presentations.
We even found some time to go to the beach and do some bowling.
It was a fantastic time.
I saw a lot of young people become excited about woodfiring. The transformation to empowerment that the kiln can have on people always fascinates me and fills my heart with joy and hope.
Thanks to Angel and Thomas for having me. And most of all thanks to all the students for being interested in my stories.
