I am so excited! This weekend I am thrilled to be taking a workshop at the Mendocino Art Center by one of my favorite jewelers and tool makers Andrea Kennington of NC Black Co. I have taken a few classes from Andrea and her partner Chuck in the past and was completely blown away at Andrea's technique and knowledge not to mention the love affair that was born with their amazing hammers and tools! Andrea is the full package, her classes are always crammed packed with information, technique, history, experience, hands on process and humor. Previously I have taken her workshops on micro raising and shell forming but this time she is offering a workshop on complex ways to texture metals and electro engraving! I am ecstatic to say the least, and I am sure I will leave with a few more of her gorgeous hammers to ad to my collection. I will post pics of the class and my practice pieces next week. Thank you Mendocino Art Center for hosting this and many other fabulous workshops! I am so fortunate to live in this small community that has such a fabulous art center, what a resource! I am always meeting amazing artist from all over the world thanks to MAC!
