Michael Fortune begins the first week of his two-week apprenticeship. His class threw themselves into the spirit of the thing and the steaming and the bending began almost immediately! Lots of great demonstrations and the genesis of some really great projects.
This week we the shop is devoted to a charity event to benefit the Narrow Gate Foundation. During the week these folks made a bunch of inspired boxes, complete with marquetry and an integrated locking system for the top. Each student made 2 boxes; one for themselves and one to give to a special person.
