Weekend Workshop

Hi welcome to my first blog on my new website. If you haven't visited this site yet I hope that you like the new look and I am quite excited because I hope to fill this site with lots of new work, interactive blogs, and learning videos. Eventually my dream is to be able to develop a library of video learning tools. This to me is very thrilling but there's a lot of work ahead. The outlook is for 2023-2024.


At the moment I want to refresh and update regarding the upcoming workshop. It takes place April 24th and 25th. My doors with be open at 9:45am until 3:45pm on Sunday. Monday Evening doors will be open at 6:00 for questions and practice. We will start at 6:30 and end at 10:00pm Monday. The outline for the course is as follows:
