Tomorrow morning at 8am, we begin our seventh Craftsman and Resident Craftsman Programs at Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking. Since the school's inception, I had set aside my own work until which time I was confident that the programs presented at the school best reflected Jim's teachings and encouraging a sensitive and sensible approach to our craft.
This year's class includes students from Japan, Israel, Belgium, Mexico, United States and Canada. This fall, we have the largest group of returning students. We have five second year students, three Artisan program alumni including a Resident Artisan program alumni. I think this confirms we are on course. I have returned to my bench, and while my progress has been slow, I am finding my way back to the craft that is so dear to me.
First Elephants takes place at our home on Friday September 16th at 5pm. Please join us as we present a cabinet by James Krenov and welcome this years class.
Be well and enjoy your work,
