Community day began with a little dance from Jean-François, perhaps shaking out the jitters before the crowd arrived.
The event seemed to attract a good crowd of interested visitors. ’Round about noon, the shop was downright crowded. People watched us work, asked questions, looked at our work, and generally seemed to enjoy meeting us. The lunch catered by Paolo’s was pretty good too.
A few people even wanted to talk with Peter and Elisabeth.
After lunch, I gave a private lesson in sanding to Elisabeth’s daughter Gianna.
And throughout the day, Lesya danced, first (and several times) with Sean’s piece, for which she had prepared.
And then, spontaneously, with mine. I was moved.
After everyone had gone, we did a little spontaneous celebrating.
Elisabeth and I helped Siegfried finalize the position of his vessels in his collaborative piece with Peter, which inspired Elisabeth to dance.
And Jean-François worked a little too, turning and decorating wood elements for Peter’s cable-and-wood jewelry line.
Afterward, we all went to Albert and Tina’s house for dinner. That will be a long entry with a lot of photos, so it will have to wait for daylight.
