Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:
"Everyone starts somewhere. Before I even exhibited at a show, I built my confidence by taking items I made into the school where I taught, they sold quickly - and it mushroomed from there. If I could make clay (even before Nan Roche's New Clay) you can, too, with lots of practice. Take as many classes/workshops as you can to see what is an 'appropriate' amount of instruction in a teaching session."
