2014-01-18 Saturday - Akira Satake workshop

On Saturday and Sunday I attended the Akira Satake workshop at Clayworks.  It was a fun, informative workshop with a wonderful teacher.  He gave us lots of invaluable information and kept us laughing along the way.

On Saturday night Akira played a concert for us on his banjo as he is also a very talented musician.  When Becky told her husband Fred that Akira was going to play for us, Fred said we should hold the concert at their studio, Concentrix Music and Sound.  We all settled into Studio 1 and were treated to Akira's playing.

After the concert we went to Ben Thanh for a late supper.

I also got to sit next to fellow blogger Linda Starr for two days.  It was great actually talking to her in person.

My thanks to Akira, Clayworks, and Fred and Becky Story for a great weekend.

Super photos of the workshop. So good to meet you and Becky and thanks for all your help and use of your tools; it was a great workshop; I posted about it and linked to you and Concentrix a couple of days ago. Finally closed on our house and have been moving in slowly; signed up for a six week pottery class in Helen starting next week and anxious to get my studio together.
