A really old photo of pieces ready for the kiln.

Tomorrow I will at Bead Haven all day (it's a good thing I like the place!). In the morning I have a very rare weekday session of the All Day Metal Clay workshop. The workshop runs from 10 am to 4pm. The idea behind this workshop is that if you have an idea that you need help with or a project that you don't know how to approach and you'd like help from someone with a lot of metal clay experience, I'm here to help you figure it out. And if you're not really sure what you want to do, we can figure that out too. It's a class with no set agenda, which I think is really fun and truly promotes creativity. The times that we've done this before everyone, including me, has learned a lot and had a great time.
In the evening I'll be teaching a PMC and Mold Making class at 5:30-7:30. This class is good for beginners as well as people with metal clay experience. If you're interested in either class, please give the store a call at 319-247-2323.

Love those ginkgo leaves and pistachios!

Vickie, the ginkgos worked out well, the pistachios, not so much! They were going to be bead cap-ish. This photo was from maybe 8 years ago. I might have to revisit the idea ; )
