Advice sought from St. Louis Crafthausers

Posted on October 23, 2013 at 2:57pm 0 Comments

My wife and I are moving to St Louis early next year.  She has just been hired as Metro Theater Company's new Artistic Director.

I would love to hear any advice you have about the crafts community there --  studio space and teaching opportunites, etc.  We are going to rent for a while till we get a feeling for the area so we'd be grateful for any tips on where to live. Ideally, being close to the theater would be a plus.

I've only been to St. Louis a few times back in the late…

Hello from the other side of the world!

Thank you for adding me to your friends list. I like your work very much, especially the use of "unconventional" stuff as jewelry and the combination of "precious" and "nonprecious" materials. This speaks a lot to my own credo!

Best regards from Berlin, Germany.

Trust me Tom I will be producing a lot more of it now. I really love some of you work perhaps we could get a little group together and do a online exhibition of concrete in jewellery :)

The person in charge of programming at Touchstone is Adam Kenney, their Exec. Director who happens to also be a crafthaus member, his profile is here.

Adam can be reached via akenney@touchstonecrafts.org.

Tell him I sent you. :-)

I'd be interested to take your found object workshop as it speaks deeply to my scrounger nature. 'Anything and everything should be made into jewelry.' Hell, yeah!!
Hope you'll teach at Touchstone or the SCC (both in Pittsburgh PA area) sometime....

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
