WORKSHOPS

"I believe that creating with our hands is a primal experience that connects us with who we are, in a way that we are often deprived of in this increasingly digital world.  The more connected we are with our innermost being, the happier we are, and the more happy people there are in the world, the more peaceful our world will become.  This is why I share the art of craft."
