A quick post before I run off to bed. It has been a while since I have written anything regarding the future studio, mostly because there has not been much to write about. Recently, though, I have made a small amount of headway on the teaching front. I contacted a local community college about offering a pottery class in their continuing education program. It was actually way back in January when I first contacted the program director; he said to wait until mid March and send him my resume and such. Done
So now I have talked with him a couple time via the computer box and he seems very interested in offering a pottery course. Apparently they used to have one, but for some reason no longer do. I also contacted the full time ceramics instructor at the school to discuss studio issues. She was not in when I called so now I am eagerly awaiting her reply.
As I think I said before, the original idea was to offer classes in my own studio, but I think the start up costs (space, insurance, utilities, equipment, etc) are a bit much at this time. Hopefully teaching at the community college will work out so I can supplement whatever studio income I can generate. Then I can build the studio up a little at a time and offer my own classes some time in the future.
Ok, that is all for now. I will see if I can scrape some time together tomorrow to rant about mass production.
