Francisco Umpierre
The most impresive group of talented rod builders in just 3 days

Been building more than 45 years and I am still learning!! This group are in one word, “artists” what a weekend! I would definitively go to the next one! Always something new to learn!!

Advance Workshop

I had a great time learned a lot of new things looking forwards to practicing some thread art wraps reminded of some things I had learned but not used in a while, left with my battery recharged and ready to start some new techniques and polish some of my old with a new mindset seeing it done just a little another way. Thanks, Ronnie
