Intro to Glassblowing at Artisan Collective

This post is a long time coming. I took this insanely incredible class a few weeks ago, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it…or looking up torches on Amazon. Artisan Collective is a cool studio packed full of locally made goods and a calendar full of amazing classes where you can brush up on your pottery, painting, silversmithing and yes, glassblowing skills. My teacher, Mike Hurst, was as hilarious as he was...

Silversmithing with Artisan Collective

I love to craft. There I said it. I am a craftaholic, and I will scream it from the rooftops. Crochet, pottery, hell, even scrapbooking now and then when the urge hits. When I found out the Artisan Collective hosts the coolest craft classes around I had to jump in. The first one I took was the copper cuff class followed by a copper enameling class (which you can read about HERE), and our girl Candice took a watercolor class with her...

NEW YEAR, NEW MUSIC, NEXT ENSEMBLE

By Carey Campbell NPR’s show Composer’s Datebook ends each episode with the trademarked phrase: “reminding you that all music was once new.” Why do listeners need to be reminded of such a seemingly obvious fact?

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile.
