I’m getting excited about my fall workshops! I love teaching and it’s always exciting to meet new students. These will be the last workshops in Bakersville. After that I will be moving the studio to Asheville. The October workshop at Wild Acres is such a great deal. You not only get the workshop but you also get food and lodging in a beautiful location at the very best time of year. It’s really such a privilege to be able to run a workshop there. I hope to see some new faces and some familiar ones, as well. And thanks, Art Jewelry Magazine, for including this piece in the new Making Metal Jewelry! For those considering a class with me, the colored pencil technique in the magazine is not my technique, in case you were wondering.
I’m working on planning fall workshops and I will be announcing at least one Drawing on Metal workshop and one fabrication workshop in the next few days so stay tuned! Class size will be limited and there were a few folks who waited too long to sign up for the Drawing on Metal workshop at Wild Acres and missed out. Also, I will tell you all about my trip to San Francisco for the ACC show. Here is a pic of the cardboard booth we built on site. It was a big hit.
This weekend is the Toe River Arts Council studio tour. It’s a great opportunity to visit your favorite artists in their studios and discover new artists, as well. I will be in my studio at 60 S. Mitchell Ave in downtown Bakersville along with David Trophia jewelry, John Lara jewelry, and Valerie Schnaufer ceramics. We’ll be having a good time and we hope that you can stop by for cocktail and see our new work. The studio will be open Friday, June 6 from 12-4, Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 12-5. Our number on the tour map is 35. It’s the bright blue building.
