“BikeLaw”

We got a great write up on the BikeLaw blog. I think I need to make a testimonials page on the site to add this as well as other nice things people have said about taking my frame building class.

“American Craft Council”

I have been invited to participate as a panelist for a symposium hosted by the American Craft Council.

This event will be held at the North Bennet Street School in Boston and will be attended by students from the North Bennet Street School and MassArt.

The symposium will be held September 25th and 26th at the North Bennet school along with three other craftspeople.

I am honored to take part, happy and impressed that a bicycle maker will be included in the panel. This shows that the bicycle craft has elevated itself to the norm rather than a exclusive niche of the bike world. I hope that my participation will be helpful for the future craftspeople that I will be working with 🙂
