Description of Apprenticeship:

I have been doing art or craft as a living all my life.
Presently living in Gaviota,near Santa Barbara CA,doing many retail craft shows and some wholesale since 1980.
I am offering a learning by doing apprenticeship in the handmaking of an extensive line of nonferrous functional products that have been developed and profited from over the past 30 years.

I want a person who is ready to work with their hands, heart and mind and capable of absorbing an aesthetic discrimination in material, color ,composition and craftsmanship.
My shop is basic and almost 3rd world in some respects and advanced in others all in a beautiful location.
What I do is beyond where any one else has gone with this particular niche market.
I need to pass this unique methodology on to someone so I may have time to complete other artistic projects that have been waiting.
If you are interested please contact me.

Thank you and Peace be with you,

Kevin Loughran
