PMC classes in the Santa Barbara?

Hi All,

I am looking to take PMC classes in the Santa Barbara, CA area. Can
anyone out there recommend a teacher or class that would be a good
starting place?

Many Thanks,

I think Barbara Simon is in California. Woops, no, Florida.
Check the class listings at:
Sorry, I can’t think of anyone in California. You could also ask on
the yahoo metal clay group.

go to, & enter the site. click on the
“classes” tab in the top bar, & you’ll get a search menu. you can’t
search by city, but can choose california, & then hunt through the
list. there are several senior teachers listed, & i also recognize a
few names from seeing their work published.

i can’t get more specific than that, sorry! i took the level one
certification class through pmc connection last year, but here in
florida. it’s a great class, & you get a good coverage of different
techniques with different materials (pmc+ clay, pmc3 clay, syringe,
slip, & paper).
