OUR NEXT WORKSHOP....
I also plan on having another small workshop in MA (10 miles outside Boston) in the late fall, and for any interested, kidcedar at gmail dot com. I'll have more info soon enough. November 2nd weekend looks like our best bet- which'll mean nice, cool temperatures, thus warranting a bonfire at night for discussions.We'll have guest speakers, demos, actual building (a collaborative project), and then some....
