Spaces are still available for a class this weekend at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in Manchester, CT. The weather is starting to warm up, so come out and join us! The class is open to all levels and also use your imagination and bring whatever project you want to carve. It is completely open and it is going to be an adventure!
I’m flying out in that direction early because I am going to do some “museum exploring” before the class. On Thursday, Bob Van Dyke (of CVSW) and I will be heading to New Haven, CT to see the Yale Furniture Study and their Art Gallery. Then on Friday we’re heading into the grand city of New York to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Very excited! I wish I had more time because I would love to head to Boston also. Another time…
The last time I was in New York City I was 11 years old. My father built a sailboat and 7 of us (Dad, Mom and 5 children) lived and traveled for an entire year. Coming up the Hudson and seeing the Statue of Liberty was a memory that will stay with me forever. Even at that young age I could imagine myself coming from a far-off country with the excitement of being welcomed into America. It was an amazing experience.
Hope to see you in Connecticut!
