we have been visited by 5th and 8th graders from the Holbrook, Maine elementary school, and we have gone to the "Elm City" to present in a PechaKucha. It's fun to say yes to all these requests to share what we love to do.
To see a video of the PechaKucha see below I was the ultimate presenter, so there was plenty of time to get nervous...!
The group from the downeast senior college pictured above braved the cold spring weather in early April to visit the studio, learn about our process and to watch a glass blowing demonstration. After all the fireworks the visit sank into a lovely conversation about the blown glass jewelry we make. The bright color of the beads was eye candy for the ladies.
The group from the Holbrook School was super fun, the kids were almost as enthusiastic as their chaperones and teacher, Lynn Nickerson! We truly enjoyed showing them up close and personal how something so hot can be so cool!!
