Antoinette covers a lot of subject matter during her porcelain demonstrations. She needs at least 1 day access to the studio and equipment ahead of a demonstration to prepare work. Her demonstrations are presented like a cooking show.
All her workshops cover the following information:
Pottery demonstrations to the general public and schools
There are times when the general public benefit from pottery demonstrations.
Antoinette adjust her demonstrations to suit the need of the specific group that she is working with.
The foundation of all her demonstrations is working with clay.
Many times Antoinette will use clay to describe her own approach to relationships, or business or problem solving.
Other times she is strictly showing the clay process as knowledge enrichment to adults and children.
There are times when there is a need for inspirational or spiritual discussions. Antoinette is a potter, she is not a pastor or a psychologist, but her life and work encouraged many people in the past and when she creates her work, she always wonder how other people will see it. There are analogies in the clay process that is applicable to human life.
It is necessary for the hosts to consult with her about the specific demonstrations that they are interested in.
