To reply to Elaine Luther:
I have given many such workshops over the last 28 years. My research
on the subject began in the mid '1970's and was submitted as part of
my MFA Thesis at Cranbrook in 1977.
If you would like a reference one of my presentations, ,contact
Jeannie McAninch in Tuscon Arizona - she applied for,and recieved a
SNAG grant to have me come do one for the local metalsmiths in 1998
in that area.
I wrote the SNAG tech paper on Health and Safety for the 1978 SNAG
Conference in St. Louis.
Introduction to Goldsmithing Health Hazards
I updated it in 1999 to be published in the Lapidary Journal Annual
Also was: Editorial Consultant on Health & Safety for Practical
Casting, by Tim McCreight, Brynmorgan Press. 1986.
There are more listings on my resume on my website -
I can modify the presentation to the needs of the attending
Let me know if I can be of any help.
