Recent Workshops
It was such a pleasure to be back teaching at Maiwa in Vancouver in September. 


I taught both sculptural and wire workshops and both classes were sold out.  Everyone did excellent work!  

Thanks so much to Charllotte Kwon and the whole Maiwa crew for such a well run symposium!  Love that organization!
