Photos of April Welding Day Camp, plus a little lagniappe

Sunday, April 9, we hosted one of our Spring Welding Day Camps. It was an incredible day of welding, bench-making, food-eating (big bowls of veggie chili for lunch, then a spread of stuffed chickens & boudin wraps & beers to end the day). Everyone ruled so hard mastering their own bench projects; this was some serious welding, and I'm happy to report that every single person's bench passed the test: sit down and wiggle your butt around to see if your bench works ;)

My next workshop will be April 30 at the amazing Hotel San Jose where we'll use KKDW shop-made rings to create beautiful floral wreaths. Their courtyard is an idyllic escape, plus flowers plus complimentart mimoasa/coffees? You're set. Join me!

Then, Travis & I will be holding two more Day Camps this season: a full Day Camp on May 20, and a Mini-Camp on June 24.
