In May I had a wonderful trip to Adelaide to do a short residency with the University of South Australia and TAFE South Australia. It's always great to work with students studying ceramics - they're full of good ideas and enthusiasm and as much as I hope they learn something from me in our sessions, I always learn something from them too. In addition to the workshops with students, I got to catch up with my great friend and colleague Kirsten Coelho to give a talk about our experiences in Arita, Japan where we both visited last year for residencies. I rounded off the weekend with a community masterclass which was also lots of fun. A big thank you to Julie Bartholomew at University of South Australia and to Peter Johnson and Bruce Nuske from TAFE South Australia for coordinating the residency and to the JamFactory for hosting me...and to everyone who came out for the sessions. It was my first time to Adelaide, but it won't be my last!
