hey Denver potters...

I plan to move to Denver between January and March and I'm wondering what options I have for continuing my ceramic education / career in a (relatively) inexpensive yet good-quality way, at least until I can save up some money. I know there are some pottery guilds out there... any recommendations? Are there any artists who would like to have an apprentice? I read on another blog that an apprenticeship would be an excellent way to get experience without the high cost of higher education. What are your thoughts?

Cynthia might be able to help you get your bearings in the 'big city'.

I've had good luck with the guild I'm in. Great people, great resource, exposes me to things I might not otherwise bother with.

Check out the local parks and recreation dept. Along with the community colleges, they'd be most likely to have the arts programs, and if you're lucky like I am, the community studio you could access until you save up for a wheel and a kiln.

good luck!

Oh yeah, I do read Cynthia's blog. I hope to get in contact with her when I move.

I didn't think about the local parks & rec dept. I am thinking seriously about buying a wheel, but I would definitely need someplace nearby to fire everything.
