About SWKC

An informal gathering of archaeologists, potters and other folks with an interest in ancient and modern Southwestern ceramic technology. This event has been held nearly every year since 2003 at various sites in the American Southwest. The SWKC provides opportunities for people with a range of interests and skill levels; a beginners pottery workshop, archaeological panel discussions, presentations and demonstrations of prehistoric pottery technology, pottery firings and a field trip to dig clay.

In 2015 the conference will be held in Safford, Arizona at Eastern Arizona College’s Discovery Park Campus on October 16 – 18, 2015. For details see the conference schedule page, then use the conference registration form to reserve your place.
