Have I told you about this incredible opportunity that I get to partake in? Well, my younger brother, who is a very talented Blacksmith, is curating an exhibit of artisan makers in Bozeman, MT and I will be a part of it. I of course am to the moon and back excited to be a part of such a talented group of Makers. If you are in the area, please come over and check it out, I know it is going to be one heck of a party!
“Making for a Living” is a festival aimed at educating aspiring artisans about what it means and what it takes to be a professional working artisan. The event will begin Friday February 7th 11am at the Cottonwood Club. The festival will include demonstrations and talks given by a diverse group of professionals, ranging from leather working, to bronze sculpture. The festival will conclude on Saturday February 8th 7pm with an exhibition of exploratory work done by the involved artists.
