We’ve been crazy busy getting things moving the last few months.between Macabee Metals and COSoM. We’ve been making lots of stuff for the holidays and teaching people how to do what we love.
On November 25th we will host our small business Saturday on Sunday. Our craftspeople will be demonstrating their work and selling their wares. We will also offer make and takes where you can craft an item and give it as a gift or keep it for yourself. I will have more details as we go forward both here and in the events section of the website and on Facebook. the Cosom and Macabee metals pages on Facebook. we should have room for a few more vendors contact me at Adlai@macabeeknives.com if you are interested.
Check out our class listings we will be adding new and unique classes soon as well as gift certificates for the Holidays.
October was a very exciting and busy month for us. We had our first Date Night event. Where couples came and worked on several projects in our studio. They forged skulls from steel, sculpted spiders from copper, bats from leather and cast Halloween coins from pewter.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to spend their Halloween Playing with Fire.
I also got to work with some great kids at the Idea Foundry who came from Columbus Torah Academy. The school is working on developing a Makerspace along with it’s STEM program. Teaching the next generation to work with their hands and the satisfaction that comes with creating and taking a project to completion not only builds self confidence but also teaches them appreciation for arts and fine craftsmanship. It teaches them how much hard work goes into even something as simple as a coat hook.
I like use a teamwork approach with my younger students so that one holds the stock and the other one strikes. It not only gets them to work together but they also build the project faster when they can get a little more power and control using both hands to strike.
Thanks for all your love and support. we couldn’t do this with out you.
