Niko and I had a fantastic time in Canada. Kj MacAlister was a perfect hostess. No really. I mean *perfect. We spent the first part of the week in Salmon Arm, which is in British Columbia, on the west side of Canada. On Tuesday night we gave a short demo at the Workshop: Studio and Gallery. Then we drove through the Canadian Rockies with a stop over in Banff, which is gobsmackingly beautiful. We finished out the week in Edmonton, giving a couple of workshops at the Clayworks Studio Link, run by ever charming and generous KJ and the enormously energetic Elli Grassmuck.
