  1. Hello! It sounds exciting and I was wondering where to find out when you’ll have a plan/schedule for the day? Is this blog the best place, or will it be in Benchpeg? thanks 🙂

    • The schedule for the day is currently being finalised so will be posted here when we have details of all the speakers/demo givers and their topics. In amongst those we are currently scheduling are; colouring of metals, glass and ceramics – their use in jewellery and green workshop practices.
