Spring, summer, and fall have filled up fast, so I am looking forward to a busy and exciting year. Here is a list of some things I am going to be involved with over the coming months:
April 24-26 | In just about a month I am headed to Ashokan, NY for the Northeast Blacksmithing Association's Spring Hammer-In. I will be the demonstrator for the weekend. There will also be an iron smelt going on, so it is sure to be a fun time.
May 1-3 | I am sticking around the northeast to teach a class the following weekend at the Center for Metal Arts. I think there are still a couple spots left in the class, so if you are interested in honing your forging skills as well as learning some decorative filing and inlay, head on over to their website to sign up.
June 12 | I have a solo show opening at the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, TN. This is part of the Tributaries exhibition series they put on each year, and will also include an artist lecture at the Memphis College of Art.
September 20 -November 13 | I will be at Penland School of Crafts teaching Fall Concentration in the iron studio. This two month long class will focus on forging, refining, and ornamenting small utilitarian objects. I am excited to share that Peter Ross will be joining me to co-teach for part of the concentration, so it is going to be a really excellent class. I will be sure to share more when Penland posts their fall classes online.
