David Gamble was our first presenter to have a waiting list, Because of the hands-on nature of the workshop, it had a limit of 20, and we actually managed to sneak in two more. The attendees from Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The workshop was so well-recieved, and, since we still had a waiting list, we asked him to come back for an encore the following year, and 12 more folks from Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas were able to learn his techniques. Of course, that meant we managed to get two beautiful David Gamble plates for our collection, both of which will be on display for the exhibition. Participants at both the 2004 and 2005 workshops had a fantastic time learning about surface decoration and experimenting with a variety of products and techniques. We are looking forward to having David’s wife, Tracy come to do a workshop in the near future!

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which one’s to keep.
We are thrilled to be able to include a set of two wall tiles in our exhibition, available until the show closes on March 26th.
