Art Travel: Ceramics Holidays/Retreats/Camps/Institutes

This lovely video of a Japanese pottery retreat definitely gets us in the mood. Not all settings are as lovely, but the chief focus is on the clay, so any of these listed below would be wonderful. Have you planned your vacation time yet? If you have not, consider the following…. Aren’t you worth it? Click on the links for specifics…classes, registration, accommodation, etc. (Source: Ceramics Monthly)
