I recently launched my new website at www.DebKarash.com. Please look for me there and sign up for my newsletter. I’ll keep you appraised of special shows, workshops, and sales.
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.
