UNM Taos' ceramics department head, Lee Akins, has put together a rich single day workshop that is not to be missed. In this workshop, we will explore ways to enliven and embellish your clay work without using traditional glazing. A wide range of techniques will be introduced including slips, terra sigillata, underglazes and patinas. Students will have the opportunity to build a palate of surfaces.

 All levels welcome but some experience working with clay would be helpful.

Just $99 / Participant

Lee Akins received a B.F.A. from the Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, Ohio in 1975 and a M.F.A. in Ceramics in 1986 from Southern Methodist University.  He has taught ceramics at the college level for more than 40 years. His first college pottery instructor, Jim Romberg, used raku and Lee became intrigued with the immediacy and randomness inherent in this process. Since then he has taught many classes and workshops on the raku process. His work has been featured in ceramic magazines and publications, including an article in Ceramics Monthly (August/September 2006)   Website: leeakins.com

Maggie Beyeler One-Day Workshop​


Santa Fe's Maggie Beyeler, known far and wide for her mastery of this technique, will be coming to the TCC to share what she knows in this unique workshop!  

Participants will learn all phases of the image transfer process including: Best images for use; how-to design, print, and apply; how to fire decals onto glaze-ware; and most effective glazes to support technique. During the workshop, Maggie will demo and you will get to experiment with provided custom decals, have one-piece fired (for later pickup), and receive a digital copy of the tutorial Image Transfer with Cone 6 Glazeware.

Although geared toward the mid-range stoneware user (cone 6), all information and techniques can be applied to any other firing range. Resources are given for use with green-ware and bisque-ware as well.  The workshop will conclude with an opportunity to experiment with laser-toner decals and the participant's glaze-ware (bring a piece!).

Maggie Mae Beyeler holds an MFA in ceramics from the University of Colorado and has owned and operated Magpie Pottery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the last 20 years.

In 1998, I returned to my love of working with clay discovered during three years of high school ceramics, retraining myself on the pottery wheel and sculpting. Following the end of a 21-year marriage and undergoing treatment for breast cancer, to “follow the clay” became my mantra and life path. Mythic themes, archeological artifacts, nature, and the human form capture my interest. There is for me a fascinating relationship working in clay and sculpting bones. Basically self-taught, I apprenticed with American and New Zealand trained potters and worked as a clay arts instructor for 12 years. From 2005 through 2016, I worked from Aspen Vignettes Studio at my gallery, The Pottery Studio Gallery in Littleton, Colorado, where I represented over 50 Colorado artists.  Since my move in 2017 to Chimayo, New Mexico, I work from a sunny home studio surrounded by lush foliage where an acequia runs through it.

Kim Glidden

Two-Day Workshop​



Saturday and Sunday

December 12th and 13th, 10AM - 2PM

Limited to 6 Participants (Only 4 openings left!)

Depending on your skill level (minimal ability to throw a cylinder form) and personal interest, this

hands-on workshop will have you creating like a pro. Day one, Kim will demo throwing 3 forms

(one not to be trimmed with a pulled lip), an upright lid with a knob, two upside-down lids

and spouts off the hump during the first hour. That will allow for about 2-1/2 hours to

create to your hearts content! On day two, Kim will demo trimming two

bases, trimming the lids, throwing a knob onto one trimmed lid,

making lugs, pulling a handle, and assembling a teapot!  

And then it is your turn! (Bring your clay!)

 $165 / Participant
