So remember when I promised that I would keep folks up to date on my goings on? Hmm yeah, I meant like every two months. But here is a torrent of posts to keep things up to date. The school, is KuvA, www.kuva.fi, here is a picture of that.
Once we arrived, everyone has been awesome, and they showed me to the foundry (or what was to become the foundry) sadly it had been a carving studio and junk pile before that. here is what it looked like.
From there, I started the massive overhaul of the facilites and it turns out that there was a foundry under all that rubble, at least parts of one. With a bit of building and determination, we were able to get things up to snuff and ready to start.adly, then the school came across a major budget shortfall. Things are all put on hold until that can be Ironed out.
