    This year NMPCA returns to our popular New Mexico Connections format with short presentations by several presenters.  Six master potters lead short programs, each on a different technique. This popular workshop format brings together artists interested and expert in many different techniques and methods and results in a very lively exchange.  All participants learn from the presenters and from each other in the process of having great fun. 

    Presenters for this workshop include

    Leonard Baca presenting Sprayed Glazes and Engobes

    Gloria Gilmore-House with Refining Thrown Forms

    Cheryl HoaglandFreehand Faceting

    Andrea Pichaida presenting Hand Building of Breathing Nests

    Sara D'Alessandro presenting Dynamics of Working Small and Large

    Penny Truitt presenting Exploring the Surface

    A word about accommodations:  Rooms at Ghost Ranch this year are limited to "dormitory-style" rooms with shared bath, or camping.  The cost is $170/room, which can be shared by two people.  If you have a roommate participating in the workshop, you can each register for a "shared" room to pay 1/2 each.  If you are bringing a guest who is not attending the workshop or want to have single-occupancy, select the single occupancy choice at a cost of $170.  Meal cost is $72/person.  Alternative accommodation can be obtained at area bnb.  See ideas on our accommodation page.

The Slip Trail our newsletter has been a feature of the NMPCA for longer than almost any single member remembers!  Keeping up with modern communication methods has meant a change in The Slip Trail format from the old paper mailed format, through the emailed pdf format, and now an online Blog...available all the time and updated as information becomes available. 

We do have a publication that is closer to what is generally thought of as a newsletter called "eNews." This arrives in members mail inbox roughly once a week and is a separate publication. 

Guidelines for both eNews and The Slip Trail

We call ourselves the NMPCA
