What's up in the workshop

I recently attended a monoprint class at Creative Arts Workshop taught by master printmaker Eileen Foti.  Eileen was overflowing with information and I was in over my head for sure. With all my mistakes and inexperience, I did manage to get 2 layers on my print and hopefully will finish it with a return visit.

In a workshop closer to home, guitars are on the bench - getting ready for the Farmington Valley Guitar Show later this month.  Steve's on a mission to show off his expert craftsmanship with a self-designed resonator guitar!
