Another awesome event!! Jason Rose really puts a ton of work into this and each year they just get bigger and better. The prizes that are given away are incredible! If you're new to pen turning, I totally recommend this event! I don't think there's another way to learn so much about pen making in such a short amount of time.
Here's the list of demonstrations that took place:
- Celtic Knot–Don Peters
- Color casting –Braxton Frakenbery
- Kitless pen–Jim Hinze
- Label casting–Fred Wissen
- Segmenting–John Walsh
- Applying a CA finish–Brian Blohm
- Flip cup casting–Brian Blohm
- Colored pencil–Chad Schimmel
- Magical skew–Robert Marquis Sr.
- Thread wrapping blanks–Oscar Fluitt
I got an opportunity to talk about Pen Portfolios and the Pen Kit Inventory app.
I also got to do a one-on-one class with the segment masters from Cocoon Custom Blanks.
Here are a few pictures I took from the vendor area.
