Hope everyone is managing to stay cool.
It is so hot outside even the mosquitoes are staying indoors and they had me for breakfast!
Last weekend Thomas Mann's studioFLUX hosted Richard Salley. What a great surprise when I found out Richard was going to be here in NOLA! I have been wanting to take a workshop with him since FOREVER. It was a two day workshop about making a locket cuff.
So what did I do?
Got to see old friends...
and make new ones...
and made a couple of tools.
Which was totally cool!
I like making tools but I think you guys know that already. Mr. Pointy was a scribe and then there is the bezel pusher/burnisher. Fun to have your own tools that you make to work with.
Here is my messy bench. Everything had been etched, textured, punched, and hinged. Putting it together is all that was left.
It was a locket for the man who had inspired me from the get go of my artist life and continues to do so.
Everyone managed to finish their project by the end of the day. Yay!
You gals ROCK!
Well that is a wrap.
Richard is one Cool Cat!
Taking a workshop with Richard was a great way to finish the month of June. So what is next? I will have to get back to you about that. In the meantime Richard is teaching workshops all over the U.S. so go here and see if he will be somewhere near you.
Merci to studioFLUX for hosting Richard
a huge Merci Beaucoup to Angele for making sure we did not pass out from hunger and lack of café. ♥♥♥
