As a retrospective on this past weekend, I want to thank everyone at Touchstone for such an amazing craft-filled getaway. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Thank you also to each of my classmates for all the advice and encouragement. I met so many beautiful people with such wonderful spirits and a deep-rooted vivacity for jewelry.  It brought an inspiring and lasting impression which made the weekend that much more memorable.

The “Jewelry Fabrication in Steel” workshop with Sharon Massey was an unbelievable experience. Sharon is a phenomenal instructor with a definite ‘special something’ that all really good teachers have. I am truly blessed to have been able to meet her and I look forward to our future conservations and workshops in the future.

I knew I was going to learn a lot over the course of the weekend, but I undoubtedly learned so much more than I could have imagined possible in such a short period of time. Not just about techniques, but about the empowerment of being part of an enthusiastic craft community that believes that encouraging one another professionally and personally is integral.

Thank you to Touchstone for the scholarship opportunity and thank you to Sharon Massey for being such an amazing person and inspiration. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Touchstone and encouraging others through my own experience to attend the Craft Center. Thank you for everything!

Sincerely,

Erin
