Kent has added a free tutorial on the ins and outs of the table saw! You'll need to see this for his future classes.

He's also received quite an honor as he has been invited to participate in The Emma International Collaboration in Canada.

"The Emma International Collaboration is a biennial event bringing together 100 artists from around the world to share talents and make collaborative art. Woodworkers, blacksmiths, painters, multi media artists, carvers and others share expertise and resources to make some wonderful art work that is sold at public auction at the end of the event."

Congratulations, Kent!

harlan's intro to oil painting


Jeanne Harlan-Marriott has posted an incredible new foundation class in her Introduction to Oil Painting. Basically, this "everything you wanted to know about oil painting" class will teach you about materials beginning with surfaces to paint on, how oil paint works ("fat over lean"), brushes to use, mediums, how she organizes herself and how to finish a canvas (plus much, much more). Even Vernon now thinks he might give oil painting a try! Me? I'm definitely in and looking forward to her soon to come classes on painting specific images (Trillium class to come soon!) This class is specially priced for the rest of the month of July so now is definitely the time to sign up and tell your aspiring painters to join in, as well.

a great little gift


Inger has just posted a wonderful and easy little class. I think these are also perfect gifty items (I like to take lotions and soaps for my hosts) and with this class I could even make them myself. You'll be felting around a bar of soap! Add a leaf and it becomes quite a stylish way to scrub up. It's also a great parent and child project.
