I wanted to do one last post on the symposium. After a quick nap, and time to get gussied up, everyone heads to favorite local downtown hang out Tipsy Teapot, where we host a rock out cocktail party. We even have live music! It's a great way for everyone to just hang out and party down before heading home. This is a group shot of all the symposium participants this year who were at the party.

 

I'm not in this shot. I was in my studio, at my bench. I love meeting new people and getting the chance to talk to old friends, but by the end of the weekend, I wasn't in the mood to socialize. I was in the mood to make. For me, the symposium reignites my passion for the field and my passion for making, after that holiday lull. You get to see so much awesome work and listen to so many great people share their knowledge, how could you not want to get back in to the studio?

 

The current grads and undergrads are already working on next year's symposium. I've seen the short list for presenters and I think we're in for another great experience. Having just graduated, I don't know if I'll be able to attend the symposium in January, but I'm grateful for having had the opportunity to participate these past two years. I'm also grateful to the Crafthaus community for allowing me to share this unique experience. Thanks for following along these past few months!
