The enrollments are coming in thick and fast. Best to book early as it's looking like it will be a sell out event.

Regards,
Steven

Can I respectfully ask why you guys in Sydney seem to stick to cheque or money order only, rather than electronic bank transfer?

Unfortunately I can't make it which is a shame as I'd love to see Koji again. I was lucky enough to spend some time with him when here was here in 2015 and he's a terrific guy. His knowledge was outstanding but he's extremely modest and generous with his time.

If you have the opportunity, don't hesitate!

Matt.

I know I'm being hopeful, but I don't suppose there'll be a sales area with local-ish potters showing off their shohin pots?

Sorry Mel, no sales area. There will be an auction of the demo material though. :tu:
