Huge thank you to everyone who contributed to creating two scholarships for local students to attend my workshop at Barro Sur in Todos Santos, Baja Sur last week. We had a great time and the class created some amazing projects that were all inspired by the textures of nature. Steve Jacobi, owner of Barro Sur selected Nikoll Suset Vogas & Maythe Curiel as the recipients of the scholarships, both were thrilled to be able to participate in the workshop and were so fun to spend the weekend with. Nikoll has an agricultural engineering background with an interest in the environment and sustainable farming. Maythe is an industrial design student at UABN Mexicali and has been exploring the design of dinnerware, leaning towards a career in ceramics. Thank you for making this opportunity possible for them! 

Baja Bound…

In a few days, I’ll be headed off to our property in Todos Santos, Baja Sur to teach a weekend workshop all inspired by the desert, the ocean, the flora and the fruit of the area.

I’ll be posting photos and updates as it happens. Can’t wait to meet my students and play with clay at studio Barro Sur!

And a grande GRACIAS to all of you who donated to create two scholarships spots for inspiring local artists to attend my workshop! You guys are amazing!!

Raising Funds for Art Scholarship – Wanna Help?

I’ll be leading a weekend workshop at Barro Sur clay studio in Todos Santos, Baja Sur in November and I want to open a few spots in my class to some aspiring local artists who might not be able to pay for the class themselves.

Want to help me raise funds for them?

I’d love to raise $400 to cover two spaces in my workshop – this will cover the workshop fees and materials each artist would need to participate. If you’d like to help, you can donate any amount via the online shop here.

Thanks so much for sharing the gift of art with others!

Barro Sur is a full service ceramic studio with hand building and wheel throwing community clay classes in Todos Santos, Baja Sur, Mexico. You can follow them on IG to find out more.
