New IADCCT chapter

IADCCT — the International Association of Duncan Certified Ceramics Teachers

iadcct logoIn order to join a local chapter, you must first be a CDT (Certified Duncan Teacher). This is accomplished by completing Essentials Courses I, II, III, & IV. We had Duncan Ambassador Dru Woodward here in July for I & II ; then Duncan Ambassador Marge Quick here in August for III & IV. Those who completed the training are interested in starting a new local chapter since the closest to us is in the Toledo area.

Organizational Meeting

Dru is helping us to organize at a meeting on Sunday, October 21st at 6:00 at Denny’s in Austintown. We have been gathering signatures for the new chapter petition which will be sent in tomorrow. There are also some members of our group Ceramic Teachers / Studio Owners of Northeast Ohio & Western Pennsylvania who are already CDTs.  If you are certified and wish to join us at the meeting you are welcome.


If you wish to take the certification courses, let us know and we can arrange another session. I believe that Dru has one or two scheduled now in PA and Larry Knight is teaching the series at Ohio Ceramic Supply in Ravenna. You do NOT have to be a teacher or have your own studio to take the classes. Some folks are just interested in the advanced educational opportunities and the free online workshops.

Duncan U Classes

Workshops given by Dru on Saturday, October 20th and by Larry on Sunday, November 4th are Duncan University classes and you get credit for taking them.
