NCECA Pre-Conference: Making Through Living—Living Through Making: Studio Pottery in 2010

A few months ago, when I heard about the pre-conference happening before NCECA, Making Through Living—Living Through Making: Studio Pottery in 2010, my thought was- ‘I have to be there’. Then I read the list of presenters and once again thought- ‘I really need to be there!’ But, the reality is that I can’t make it to NCECA this year or pre-conference. I had to make the decision between getting a kiln now, or going the Philly. The decision really wasn’t very hard to make- I want to produce more than just greenware! But I was incredibly excited to find out that pre-conference is going to be streamed live, on-line for the 2 days that it’s happening. If you want to get easy updates on the conference, check out their Facebook Fan Page.

  1. I so VERY much wanted to go to the pre-conference! NCECA too, but especially the Making through Living – Living Through Making workshop since that is something I am really focusing on right now (making a viable living from pottery, that is). But alas, it was not to be. I also recently bought a new kiln, depleting funds for such activities. And working at a school makes it difficult to take off for a week to run off to Philadelphia. It is good to hear that they will be posting stuff on the web, though, so maybe I won’t totally miss out. Thanks for the info!
