So... reopening...The Omicron variant seems to be fading,
but BA-2 looks like it's rearing it's ugly head,
so I'm still a little skittish as far as in-the-smithy classes.
If you can form up a group,
all vaxxed, boosted, and able to take rapid tests just before class,
call and we can try to work out a date for an indoor class.
Scheduling has been on an ad hoc basis.
If you want to have a class of any sort,
call me at 781 81 oxide after 10am and if it's possible, we'll work something out.
If you have your own smithing setup and you can Zoom from there* we can talk about an actual online class.
*I used to think that wifi was necessary, but it turns out that even my ancient Galaxy S5 phone can do it with just a decent cell connection.
Zoom Meeting and Demonstration
This is the link! >>> Weekly Thursday Demonstration/Social Zoom 7:30 - 9:30-ish <<< This is the link!I'll be doing some sort of live smithing demonstration starting soon after 8pm.
Usually something fairly quick... 30 - 60 minutes,
and after that I'll be answering questions and being social and catching up.
Note: Through June 2022 I'll not be demonstrating until I've recovered from surgery.

Facemasks & SourdoughThere's been a lot of interest in these lately, here's my page about my design for a mask more suited to the bearded face,
(which does also work on un-bearded faces, the beard is not required for proper functioning)
And if you're making pleated rectangular masks, here's a design for a simple-to-make (cardboard and tape) pleating tool that just might speed you up.
and my No-Waste Procedure for maintaining and using a sourdough starter.
