Learn how to stream-line your production methods and manage your time in the studio!

With Sarah Pike & Naomi Clement

Join potters Sarah Pike and Naomi Clement as we discuss the ins and outs of being full-time artists!

This two-hour workshop is an inside look at how two full-time professional potters structure our days and manage our time as makers. 

This virtual workshop will cover:

  • Structuring time in the studio, and ways we streamline production
  • How we schedule our making cycles & what our days look like
  • Balancing studio time vs. admin time
  • Work/life balance
  • Creating sustainable careers—the physical and emotional side of making pottery
  • Dealing with studio burnout, and learning to say no
  • And more!

Note: This workshop is more about how we structure our time and balance wearing all the different hats we have to don as creative entrepreneurs. If you want a workshop about the business side of things and pricing, check out the new Pricing Perspectives Workshop

About the Instructors:

Sarah Pike is a full-time potter living and making pots in Fernie, British Columbia, Canada. She makes functional slab-built pottery in her home studio on an acre of land on the edge of a little ski town. Her pottery is inspired by many things, including the landscape around her home, the rich history of ceramics, but also by antique tinware, textured metal, and old things you might find in barns. She has taught workshops and exhibited her work across the US and Canada. Learn more about her work here

Naomi Clement is a full-time artist based out of Stratford, Ontario. She received my BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in 2003, and her MFA from Louisiana State University. When she’s not in the studio making pots, Naomi is often found in front of her computer—either teaching virtual workshops or working on all the behind-the-scenes aspects of being a creative entrepreneur.  She loves teaching workshops to help other potters find their voice as artists and pursue their creative careers with confidence.

What Students Are Saying About the Pottery Production Practices Workshop:

"What I lOVED from the Workshop was the "Honest Dialogue". For the first time I didn't take notes (I knew that I had the option to go back to the recorded version in case I missed something). It felt comfortable, like I had just spent two hours catching up with old friends. Thank you! Keep these coming!!!"

"This workshop came at a time where I am defining the direction to take after I retire this summer. It has given me ideas to plan my time. As I listen and review the recording I find things to consider. Thank you for an excellent workshop."

"I really like the format you are using (the teacher in me) and the relaxed feel l get from all of you. Thank you so much for offering these workshops and looking forward the next one on Pricing etc!"
