Learning Mokume

Hi, Jim, Thanks for all your contributions to Orchid! Do you have any
workshops (as in the 5-7-day intensive type) planned? I’ve taken a
notion to try mokume, and can probably get going with the available
books and articles, but I really love workshops. I take 1-2 a year,
so I have to plan well ahead. Incidentally, I just read “Mokume Gane
in the Small Shop” ( I know, that’s that other guy) and would like
to find out a little more about using a forge to create a billet,
since I have access to a coke forge. However, I’m not looking to
make my life difficult just for the sake of authenticity or such.
Your work is beautiful-- keep it up!
