Ohaaaai, I'm in @make@twitter.com 😍 thanks so much @IShJR@twitter.com for the lovely interview and article!

Still pondering on the ideas and conversations at the

for organising, Kirsty
for facilitation assistance, and the Homebaked Anfield
for the pies 😍

You know I really enjoy #solarpunk, right? I'm super excited to now be in contact with @asca__com@twitter.com and can work with their flexible solar modules. So far I received some samples and OMG! Check out how cool they look!

A mixed set of activities in the workshop this week, as I worked on three guitars: moving one through the last stages of a build, getting another through the early stages, and a final one that's in for some setup TLC.
