There's still plenty of time to sign up for the Doug Fitch/Hannah McAndrew international slipware roadshow workshop here in Falmouth next month. Doug and Hannah, two potters from the United Kingdom, should be starting to think about what kind of woolies they want to bring to Cape Cod, followed by shorts and flip-flops for their workshops in Virginia and North Carolina. We had an inch of snow last week, kids, so consider that fair warning about spring on Cape Cod.
The workshop will be in the pottery studio at the new Falmouth High School, a couple of miles from downtown Falmouth and a couple of miles from Hatchville Pottery. Stephanie York, the teacher there, is our host.
Members of the sponsoring Cape Cod Potters organization will pay $145 for the two-day workshop, non-members will pay $165. Lunch each day is included in your entry fee. One-day attendees can come for $75 and $90.
For more information on the workshop, and for a downloadable entry form, go to capecodpotters.org and follow the links to workshops. There is no closing deadline for coming to this workshop, so don't think you've missed your chance.

And PS: For those of you who follow these pottery blogs and might know her, we expect Angela Walford of Adelaide, Australia, to be visiting during the workshops. Angela is a friend of Doug and Hannah and is latching onto their tour to see a bit of the States and hang with friends. Also likely here during part of Sunday will be Fredericksburg, Va., potter and blogger Dan Finnegan. Dan will drive the visiting potters on to another workshop at his place the following weekend.
