The Nerikomi process of working with Colored Clay is complicated and takes time to learn. Many people get discouraged by the wrong choice of stain or cracking in the pieces. Stains can be expensive, so mistakes can be costly.

I have taught Colored Clay Workshops for over 20 years so I know how to help potters through this journey. I want you to succeed. I want to share the joy of working with color.

What students say about my teaching 

When my in person teaching was paused by Covid, I decided to spend my time in the studio recording a Beginners Workshop that I could share online. It took over a year to produce this series. It is the BEST Workshop I have ever taught.

 Beginners Colored Clay Workshop 

I offer a  10 1/2 hour series of 8 videos.  I guide you step by step through the entire process of hand building with colored clay. We start by choosing clay and stains and end up with a successful glaze firing of the work.
