August Clay Club: Critiques at Linda McFarling's Studio

August Clay Club will take place next Wednesday, August 12, at 6 pm at Linda McFarling's studio near Burnsville.

We will be having critiques. If you want your work to be critiqued, you need to let me know ahead of time. Here's what Linda says about how it will work:

I have 3 jurors who have volunteered to lead the critiques. Susan Feagin, Shane Mickey and Melisa Cadell. So excited about the lineup! I tried to get someone from handbuilding, throwing and sculpture as to have different perspectives.

This is a very informal, unique opportunity for folks to get feedback on their work. This could be finished work as well as work you may be working on but just want some input of ideas from others as how to improve or more forward. We will need to know how many folks will be bringing work so as not to go too long. I would think no more than 6-8.

So - if you want your work to be critiqued, send me an email ( and let me know.

Here are Linda's directions to her studio:

We've had a question about how the critiques at this month's Clay Club will work. Linda says she sees this a group activity, with the three folks that are critiquing really facilitating and getting things going.

This is an awesome opportunity and people are already signing up for the limited spaces! If you'd like your work critiqued, let me know.
