What do you make?

What a fun question. I reuse stuff to make stuff. Like used plumbing connections to make a lamp, drawer fronts from old bureaus to make a place for hooks and knobs. I've done copper forming with a trestle hammer to make outdoor sculpture.

What techniques or skills could you teach other makers?

If you had access to a helpful community of people who are happy to share their knowledge and skills, what more would you make/learn to make?

Oh gosh, except for beads, I enjoy working with all kinds of material, plastic, fiberglass, repurposed metal, fabric, glass. I'm really drawn to copper, I'd make a weather vane.

How did you find out about Barrel of Makers?
