Alan Hamer copper workshop

Following the show, we are privileged to have three very special Academy Workshops available in Morgan Hill. Alan Hamer will be teaching a copper workshop with much to learn in making your own metal pieces. Fern Vasi will be dressing your choice of a male (a shopkeeper/toymaker) or a female (maid) doll with added props. Pete and Pam Boorum will be teaching 2 half day classes. The Morning will be a small table to learn tapered legs and mitering the surround for a patterned table top. The afternoon will be weaving the seats of two beautiful Ladderback chairs. These three Academy workshops and the Friday workshops are pictured and have additional information on our website.
