Hey are you really doing this hands on project at BBS?

OK GUYS.....


My next Hands-On-Training is actually going to be in Nashville at the Concrete Decor Show...


I have been awarded a wall 13'10" x 9'8" in the "Green Room" of the Rocket Town Conference center.


I will be teaching a 4 hours class on Wed for the students however, I will be arriving and working on the wall Starting Monday the 14th until Friday the 18th when I will be finished.


I am inviting all members who desire to participate to be a part of the Vertical Artisans Crew to assist me in this piece.  I will send more details later.


If you plan on attending the Show and you are a member then I invite you to work along side with me as a Vertical Artisan.

Hi Nathan,

Is the plan to have this wall completed before the class arrives, or just the lathe/scratchcoat (prep work).  I'm interested in this, but at this point in time I have a meeting in Peoria on the 14th, then a meeting in Omaha on the 15th.  So I guess I'm asking...what is going on after the class you're teaching.  Still working on Thursday and Friday?

How many of you are going to attend this event?
Comment by Mike Zalaker on March 3, 2011 at 3:42pm
I will help.  Since I am self taught, more of a do-er than a talker I would be glad to assist and learn the right way to do things.  I am in Central Illinois and Nashville is an easy drive.

I will not be attending this time... :(

I'm sorry I will not be able to help this time either. I'm in St. Louis training to fly the CRJ 700 for GoJet Airlines. I wish I could be there. It is so much fun carving with you Nathan and Jeff.

I'll be there!! I'm brand new to this and would love to assist in any way, but don't feel my contributions would improve the final result. I'm down for whatever though and can't wait to soak it all up. Looking forward to the classes, Nathan.
