Ok, I hinted at something wonderful happening at Metalwerx.
Metalwerx is moving to a 3000 sq ft facility in Waltham, MA. And
here is the best part. I have a backer who is designing a custom
built school and community studios to my specifications. Metalwerx
will contain everything that I have ever wanted. Over the years I
have mentally logged all the ideas and suggestions that students have
discussed. So thank you to those who have taken a class or visited
We are building:
A special sound insulated forming room complete with new stakes
A complete library for “hanging out”, reading, lunches and
An office for Karen!!!
An office for Jesse, my assistant which is not shaped like a
A complete centrifugal casting setup
Complete ventilation and sinks for the school and the community
An annexed private woodworking shop which I can use
A real kitchen (tiny but real)
12 bench setups for studiomates (we may have some extra benches
Plenty of free parking and access to busses and commuter rail
Restaurants that are OPEN on Sundays!
Continued special hotel rate with Sheraton Four Points for $65
The owner of the building is an architect and a goldsmith!
We will be moving in the latter part of August. We are planning a
HUGE open house in October.
Thank you all for your help and support over the years. I will keep
you posted on updates as they come. Right now the building is being
gutted. It used to house a bundle of computers, so my “school” area
looks like spaghetti!
If you plan to attend the Orchid Dinner, I will have the plans with
me, so come find me a take a peek! I will also have the plans at my
booth at Catalog in Motion.
