JOIN US for: Post Apocalyptic Dawn of Possibilitarians
The Dawn is the new republic that brings new light into a crumbling republic of waste and warfare. It is the celebration of the possible light that must confront the current day darkness. The Possibilitarians are the dwarfs of the giantism system, the misfits in the billionaire universe, the-underneath-the-above kids who stand up against the end-of-the-world politics. Possibilitarians of the world unite!

SUNDAY August 19, 9-4pm Spoon Carving Workshop with Alex Forbes and her Wonder Wagon traveling studio. If interested please contact me ASAP - Diane Gayer at firstname.lastname@example.org
This one-day workshop leads participants through the creation of their own cooking / serving ladle out of cherry, maple, mahogany or other hardwood. Starting with a conversation about design and use, participants will choose wood and begin designing and shaping their spatula. You will be using a band saw to cut out the initial shape and then using a number of hand carving and shaping tools including gouges, spoke shaves and rasps. Then carvers will shape and finish a spatula to a fine polish ready for the kitchen.
This workshop is for anyone hankering to carve a ladle, spoon or spatula and who likes working with their hands. Beginners and experienced carvers welcome. Alex’s workshop can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/84880454
