|New small band saw and shop made stand.|
We had a fund raiser last night for my Wisdom of the Hands Program, and I was honored and worn out by the attention of so many wonderful people from our community. My students Oakley and Alena, gave instruction to guests as they made their own business card holder/desk accessories and flip cars. So, as one would guess, it was a thoroughly memorable evening for me, and will likely be the same for others. What more can I say? The hands literally touch every aspect of modern life, and while we would like to make things easier for ourselves, that our hands might remain clean, flabby, weak and without exercise, they are the instruments through which human creativity is expressed, and the steps of lasting growth of skill and character are performed.
This morning my apprentice Greg and I met in my wood shop to build stands for new small band saws, and in the afternoon, I have errands to perform for "incredible edibles," a fundraiser Sunday for the Eureka Springs School of the Arts.
Make, fix and create...
