Part 2 of my trip was the 3 Ring Circus Workshop, taught [very well] by Richard Salley and Jessica Papke. Rich in technique we spent 3 days making 5 rings. A great immersion into metal smithing; now can continue to develop and incorporate soldering, enameling, bezeling, (and more) into my pieces.
Barb Solem (with daughter Erin) did a wonderful job at organizing the retreat/workshop and were gracious hostesses; ensuring that all was taken care from lunches to shuttles to social gatherings. I enjoyed meeting and interacting with so many creative, talented folks.
Still have to unpack all my goodies, and keen to put in place my newfound techniques!
