More Images from ‘In the Clearing’

Artist Blaze Lamper‘s latest drawings from her show “In the Clearing” occupied This Must Be the Place for the month of April. As the images come down and a new art gets hung, we just wanted to say thank you, Blaze for sharing your work with us.

If you missed the show, here are some photos of Blaze’s drawings, taken by Julia Gillard.

Bevels, Burrs, Stones and Steels

Yesterday’s knife skills class at This Must Be the Place was a blast! Reynards’ butcher Andrew Dorsey (formerly of Marlow & Daughters) taught Kickstarter backers all about single and double bevels and what to do when you have burrs.

Also, JB Prince knives awesomely donated stones and steels to all participants! We hope to have more classes like this one soon. Stay tuned!

After meeting our kickstarter goal, thanks to all of you amazing people, We’re excited to start fulfilling our rewards. First up, Marlow & Daughters senior butcher Andrew Dorsey offered to teach a class in knife skills with the help of JB Prince. More than slicing and dicing techniques, Dorsey will let class-goers in on the best and easiest ways to maintain their utensils.

More classes, rewards, shows, subscriptions, love to come!
