It is hard to believe that we are already into March. Here in Western NC, daffodils and maples are starting to bloom, and we’ve had a few unseasonably warm days. Although we usually get some of our worst winter weather this month, part of me is ready for spring. Between frozen stuff falling from the sky and cold temps, studio time has been fairly non-existent in the uninsulated and unheated space. Yes, there is a propane convection heater but because of fumes, it only runs for 15 minutes at a time (better than nothing). Heck, new tops for two work benches have yet to be cut and installed! Talk about slack…
Now on to other things. I am excited today because the Copper Development Association’s article featuring EBS has published. Written by Jennifer Hetrick, the interview was conducted in early February and was originally slated to publish at the end of this month. See it here.
On the class front, new locations and schedules have been added to the calendar. Starting later this month, projects will be available at Turnip the Arts in Hickory, Iredell Arts Council in Statesville, and Caldwell Arts Council in Lenoir. At the end of May, I will also teach a class at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum. In addition, a new format is being kicked around with the folks at Hamilton Williams Gallery in Morganton for a basic fabrication workshop. It would be held a few hours a week for four weeks. With so much going on, do stay tuned for updates, check the class schedules often, and call early to reserve your spot.
