Day one of the Sculpting Magic Workshop

It was fun to watch all of the Sculpting Magic Workshop attendees come into the shop for the first time. Chances are they may have seen manny of our projects or pictures of our shop online or in the trade magazines, but there is a certain magic seeing it all for real. They didn’t get to wander or stare too long for we jumped right into the learning, sculpting, welding wiring and a whole lot more. The hours flew by as they started a variety of projects. The results - already, are amazing. Tomorrow morning, bright and early we start making magic once more…

Workshop eve

Tis’ the night before the first Sculpture Magic Workshop and it feels just like Christmas Eve. Everything is laid out, all the preparations made. I’ve heard from a few of the attendees as they arrived in town, having travelled from far and wide. Everyone is very excited! Tomorrow morning I’ll open the gates a little earlier than usual and as per normal there will be some waiting to come in. This is going to be fun!

Company is coming and they want to play!

Just before each workshop we host, it is time for a deep clean of the shop. Company is coming and they want to play with all of our toys. Every tool is rounded up, cleaned and put in its proper place. Every surface from the ceiling to the floor is dusted off and cleaned. All those bits and pieces that seem to gather in the corners are sorted and put away. Inevitably, the dumpster is filled with other bits that are no longer needed. Working projects are tucked away to make room for all of the new projects that will be done during the workshops. Then we bring out and set up the folding tables and chairs, plywood tops, and easels. It’s been an extremely busy week! Pieces are cut, samples finished, name plaques polished off and a host of other small details are all completed to get ready for our guests. We are counting the hours now until the first workshop and the real fun begins. Stay tuned…
