November Meeting at COA

The Pocosin Arts Metals Guild will meet at the Professional Arts Building in Manteo, NC on November 5, 2016.  We will begin at 10:00 am with a short but important business meeting.  During the meeting we will set the goals and the schedule for 2017.

We will also show our best smiles for a membership photo to share with Tim McCreight.

We always say bring you triumphs and pains-in-the-neck pieces to share.  This time Dottie Ansell has asked that we put our new rubric to use and critique a work in progress for her.  It is a time to help one another and Dottie is looking forward to your input.

After lunch we will explore patinas for silver and copper.

Blessings, Dianne
