As I’ve never taught by correspondence before, I’m having to figure out guidelines as how best to do this to suit everyone involved. With 5 different countries and many different time zones (ain’t that amazing in itself?!) questions and such could get quite overwhelming if this isn’t systematic. So I thought it would be most appropriate to break down all of the sections into separate blogs, even if that section only requires a short time to complete.
Therefore, 1, 2 or 3 blogs could surface at once but they would be properly titled for easy reference on that section. Please ask your questions on the appropriate blog so that others who have the same question or wish to discuss that area could be seen by all.
I’m having to start my shoe ahead of time so as the course starts, I’ll have my laptop and will be available most hours to answer your questions. With my show booth finished and no major carvings started, my time is more free just painting and getting ready for my shows.
Although I have suggested the tools needed to get the job done, you are not limited to those. If you have other bits, don’t be afraid to try them. This is supposed to help you further your abilities.
Anyways, if I think of something else, I’ll add it to this. Just remember, this is supposed to be fun and entertaining in Lumberjocks style. Don’t get overwhelmed, don’t drop out and try to remind yourself as I do at 4 a.m., Rome wasn’t built in a day!
But NOTHING is impossible!
