I arrived late Friday night so we could start Saturday morning, making tools. We went over the basics and started her off making a tool and by lunch time Jan's first tool was completed. She was very excited to have accomplished this. After lunch, Jan completed a second tool as well. While Jan was working on her tools, I was working on a few for myself, all the while watching and instructing her.
We finished up the tool making at around 4pm so we went for a walk with Sophie, Jan's dog and afterwards we played with learning how to get a red-oxide patina on copper which had been a topic we had discussed with Saign our awesome teacher, during the In-Saign workshop.
On Sunday, day 2, Jan made THREE more tools and I made her a bonus tool too. As the day ended we took Sophie for another walk and just enjoyed the weather.
On Monday, day 3 or 2.5, I gave Jan as soldering lesson with the goal that we would make, together, a tool canister. Jan, being a metal artist knows how to braze and weld but not solder - go figure. We cut the canister bodies from pipe, the bases from sheet and then went for it and by lunch the can's were soldered and now she just has to trim the bases and clean them up.
Here is a little side/movie of the days adventures.
