Want to come and experience the lush woods and crisp rivers and streams of the Knockmealdown Mountains while attending a two-week workshop on wood-firing in Ireland?

Marcus O'Mahony is hosting this workshop in June of this year. Cost is 1,250 euros (that's about $1,600) and includes accommodation and some food. His guest tutor for the two weeks is Phil Rogers of Wales who was a lecturer at the 2009 North Carolina Potter's Conference in Asheboro, NC. Rogers has taught and lectured throughout the world.
