Tucson Workshops

All, Last week I attempted to send on the wonderful
workshops we have here in Tucson. For some reason only a small part
of the post actually got printed. Hanuman apologised. I left for a
trip to New England the next day (to get my annual fix of Fall
foliage and to see family) and now I’m back to try again. FYI The
Arizona Designer Craftsmen offer a number of 2 day workshops each
year. ADC workshops get support from the city of Tucson and the
state of Arizona, making the workshops very affordable. They are
open to everyone. Many of our talented Orchid members have given
workshops through this program. I thought I would share a few of
our upcoming Artists with this forum.

Dawn Nakanishi, an internationally known California Bay area artist,

inspired by natural forms in all stages-beginning, growth, and decay
as well as a hands-on expoloration of a number of surface design
embellishments. These techniques include the use of hydraulic
press, rolling mill, sand blaster, keum boo, etc.

sensitive. All workshops are held in Tucson, AZ. For more
