NWBA Conference 2015

Hands-on class at NWBA 2015 Conference

NWBA’s 2015 Conference was jam packed with activities.  We had three demonstrators; Dennis Dusek teamed up with Brett Moten to build a sculptural NWBA sign, and Frederic Crist who also took on a sculpture project – spectacular flying birds.

There were four hands-on classes; Steve McGrew- BBQ Tools, Lisa Geertsen – Italian Leaf, Kellen Bateham – Origami in copper and steel, Scott Szloch – scrolling collaring and riveting.

AND… there was a repoussé station, a slide show, gallery, auction, and a ton of demonstrating and hands-on going on in the tailgater areas, and we had a beautiful firepit to hang out by -built by Hunter Dahlberg and Kellen Bateham. These photos are just a taste of what we enjoyed.
