  1. This letter is to Alfonse. I have an idea that could revolutionize sustainable technologies. I need assistance in building a prototype, so what I’m asking for are partners. I must be able to trust them before presenting them my idea. I am a student at SFCC. I have a degree in fine arts and currently working on a film production degree. I have an LLC and have delayed establishment due to the economic down turn. I have gone through other options that had gone awry. I can be contacted at: [email protected]. My mobile is 505 469-8687

  2. Hi Claudia. Thanks for your interest. You can see the 2020 workshop schedule HERE. I’m not teaching in Ashland or New Mexico this year, but I have some great locations to consider. Hope you can join us!

  3. Hello,

    My name is Austin and I am VERY interested in learning how to timber frame houses. I live in ABQ, NM and was wondering if you were aware of any organizations or institutions that teach this type of course. Thanks.
