large group demonstration and hands-on workshops are useful and effective. there is also great benefit from a small group hands-on format. this allows teaching to be more individual and effective; a relaxed atmosphere with greater access and assistance from conner. two days of focused time in the studio with the guidance of conner will enhance your comfort and ability with clay.
