Adamah is located on 550 beautiful acres in the Driftless region of Southern Wisconsin.  It is adjacent to Governor Dodge State park and a few short miles from art galleries, farmers markets, the American Players theater and Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin.  The art campus includes a main, fully equipped, spacious studio, an open-air summer studio, a two chamber Anagama wood kiln and the Adamah Retreat Center with lodging and a dining hall.  This campus provides a unique and very special way to experience the Steven Hill Journey Workshop while being completely immersed in the beauty and creative energy of Adamah.

Journey Workshop

My journey began with a summer workshop in 1972, taught by Peter Sohngen.  Since the early 80's, I have shared MY aesthetic and techniques in over 300 workshops.  This workshop is different; it is about you and your relationship with clay.  This journey is YOURS. -- Steven Hill

You are inspired,

You are motivated,

Begin your!

What inspires you?  Art? Music? Nature? Technology? Architecture?  Each of us is capable of expressing unique individuality in our ceramic work.  Is your work as personal as you would like it to be or does it seem more like a collection of techniques learned from others?

Your journey begins with 6 1/2 days exploring your relationship with clay at Adamah Art Studios.  Through a combination of individual critique, group discussion and hands-on experimentation, you will set in motion the search for personal expression.  You will leave The Journey Workshop with a plan for the upcoming year and return to your studio with focus, renewed motivation, a group of peers, and a mentor to help keep you on track.

Who is a prime candidate for the Journey Workshop?

This workshop is perfect for the professional who feels stale, for the amateur who wants to develop their body of work, or anyone who wants to take their pottery or sculptural work to a deeper, more personal level.  It is helpful to be comfortable with your basic techniques, as this workshop is not technically oriented.  In the past however, people at all levels of expertise have benefited greatly from taking the Journey Workshop.

Workshop Structure:

You will NOT be learning Steven Hill's techniques in The Journey Workshop.  Instead, this workshop is designed to help you find YOUR voice in clay.  Steven will push you to go deeper and discover personal ways of expressing yourself.  Yes, it is true there is nothing "new" in art, but that doesn't prevent you from bringing your own authentic spirit as a potter, sculptor, artist and human being to your ceramic work.
