Last week I made the maiden voyage of my home made tear drop trailer, and today we launch Turning Around America. This blog will be about the preparation and execution of a project that has been planned for 2 years. I will renovate a Van with a workshop/live space and travel around America teaching as many people as I can how to make simple objects. Having been a professional woodturner/ woodworker for over twenty five years I will use this as the medium for the object making. I believe that our countries focus on technology has eliminated handcrafts from school curriculum’s. I love technology but feel we need to embrace technology and hand craft to be more empowered individuals. For more information about this project go to http://www.turningaroundamerica.com where I am raising money for this project.
