Hi All,
We are still looking for some people to come join us For a woodfiring
workshop featuring Peter Callas. Unfortunately, we need some more
people to make it work :( Mr. Callas would like to make this an annual
event, and as many of you can probably attest to, the first one is the
hardest, so we would really appreciate your support. If you are
interested PLEASE call the number below. The official make it or break
it date is the Feb. 15 (but we are trying to extend that, so if you miss
by a day or two, try any way). All to information is below.
