I have been busy preparing for upcoming workshops. [Peace} Last month I taught a three day repousse workshop for a small group in Scottdale, AZ. This month I am teaching forging to a small group here in Tucson. In June I have been asked to teach a 4 day repousse workshop in the mountains near south east of Denver. We will be making tools and faces. I will also demonstrate the Japanese high relief work known as Uchidashi. I can get the full details once the dates and information is confirmed and post it if folks are interested.

Best,
Fred

Fred,
Do you ever make it out East?? Or am I just going to have to come out there? [Beer] Not such a bad thing since I have been "jones-ing" for a trip to Sedona. [Groovy] (love that place!)

I have a buddy of mine that lives in Loveland CO. and does copper countertops. I'll let him know about this class.

Take care,
Chaz

Location at Craig May's shop in Pine Junction, Colorado

Dates June 12-15
Class to cover basic tool making and hands on instruction on pitch bowl repousse with a raising demo at the end of the class.

Chaz,

I could be coaxed to teach a class back East. Things are tight all over and most places are looking for local artists to teach the workshops.

Best,
Fred

Thanx Fred!
Sounds like it would be well worth while. I need some guidence. I have never used pitch or did any raising. I guess I mainly do "embossing". I have a client now that wants a whole door done in Art Deco. I'm still struggling with what to charge them so as to not over charge them and not cut my throat. (I typically do the latter.) I guess I should start another thread on that project. Thanx again!!!!!!!!!!!! Chaz

Wow, sounds juicy! I'd like to see something closer, and this year's economy ain't gonna make CO, but ya might think about the John C. Campbell Folk School, or Arrowmont, or Penland - they don't care to compensate an artist that has a good student following. I have taken 3 from Bob Trout at JCCFS, mostly copper repousse, embossing, soldering and some raising. Id' be real interested in more though!

Seems the economy has had a real effect and the workshop was not filled. I have been teaching monthly workshops to a group of motivated women students. It is such a treat to work with them.

I would like to teach back east and it will be a few years before I am available to take the time.

Yup, altho I have plenty of work and besides the fact I have a tendancy to "give some of it away" [Smile] , it seems a little soft right now.

I sure do wish I were closer to you. I REEEEEALLY would like to get some help and guidance. I think I do ok but I know there a lot of things I could learn and working with someone like yourself would help keep me from making all the usual and customary mistakes. I love expand upon knowledge instead of just reinventing the same thing. Oh well, maybe one day i can get out there.

Good luck with the classes!
