a successful event...

Yesterday, adults and children got a chance to make things at ESSA. Woodturners from Stateline Woodturning Association kept the turning room very busy. Guests were allowed to try their hands at blacksmithing, wood carving, jewelry crafting, making hand carved and painted gnomes, and making sloyd trivets from Gustaf Larsson's book Elementary Sloyd and Whittling.

Hands On ESSA was a fundraising event, so the cash jars filled, and postcards designed by area artists were sold to the highest bidders. What we have here is a facility built in service to the arts that is being loved.

Make, fix and create... encourage others to learn likewise.
