6-Day Master Cane Workshop in Florida, 2015

UPDATE: Workshop Plans Have Been Finalized
Only 2 spaces left!   Information/Registration

Many of you (but probably not all) know that I’m doing most of my communicating on my Facebook page these days, rather than through this blog. I find Facebook works better for real time information exchange. The responses on Facebook are more immediate and more numerous. Not long ago I posted the following: “I am trying to decide IF, WHEN and WHERE to teach my 6-Day Master Cane (Kaleidoscope Pendant Intensive) Workshop in 2015. If you have any thoughts on this, please let me know.”

Within a few days I had nearly a hundred responses. People not only encouraged me to hold a workshop, they told me where they wanted it to be held. Florida was the winner by a substantial majority (see votes at the end of this post.) I have made some tentative plans for a workshop in Florida. I’m posting the information here because some of you might not be following me on Facebook.
