If you want to drop in for three days at the Florida School of Woodworking in Tampa, I’ll be teaching a bowl carving class there as part of Fine Woodworking’s Hands On Tampa event February 1-3, 2019. I’ve never spent a single day of winter where there’s no winter, but I’ll manage somehow. They tell me we may even get to carve outside — in February!
There are seven other classes as well, with a list of instructors that I would love to learn from, including Mary May and Peter Galbert. Registration has now opened. Check it out at the link above.
I’ll be in Plymouth again too — after things warm up next year. More on that and other possibilities later as things take shape.
I wish I could get to Florida, but I can’t at present. I don’t know if you have ever considered coming out to the West Coast. If this is something you might consider, I highly recommend the Port Townsend School of Woodworking on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. if you have any interest, I would love to introduce you to the Director. The School is on an old Army base with a number of other schools adjacent to a quaint old community. I have taken a couple of week long classes there, and find it to be an excellent, well equipped school with terrific craftsman/teachers. I would love to take a bowl (or spoon, or letter) carving class from you, and have no doubt that any such class would quickly fill to capacity.

Thanks, Martin. It would be wonderful to work with you someday.
Sounds cool. Maybe the mosquitos will have abated by then.
Mosquitoes in February! I’d never thought of that.
