Stelle einen Ring her
We will begin with a peek in the Gallery, featuring jewelry handcrafted by US artisans, and a tour of our Studio School. I will also share some history of our 1890 Victorian-era building. In the workshop, you will use steel letter stamps and a hammer to impress words of your choice onto sterling silver strips. Then, you will form the strip into a circle and solder it together (with help). Finally, oxidize (blacken) the ring, and polish to your desired finish. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates. Other things to note Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.
Verliebe dich in die Weinhandlungen von Virginia
This Metro-accessible intimate winery experience is tailored to fit you! From a curated list of wonderful wineries, we will visit two in Virginia's picturesque Wine Country - on the relaxing drive though the verdant and colorful Virginia countryside, we'll get to know each other a bit and you'll learn some of the history and backstories of Virginia wine - at each winery, you'll taste several award-winning red, white, and rose wines - following each tasting, we will sit, relax, and enjoy a selection of seasonal wine-friendly snacks often in a beautiful outdoor setting. Plan to stay at each winery for about 1-1.5hrs, with an approx 4-5hr total trip time (including travel time). The day trip is perfect for solo travellers, couples, and small groups - it's meant to be a intimate day with a personal tasting in the beautiful Virginia Piedmont. The Experience can be up to 4 Guest, so there is a chance if you are a solo traveller or a couple, additional wine lovers may join! I'm happy to send you my information PDF so you'll have an idea of the curated wineries, and you can do research on your own to make your Experience the best it can be. While I'm a pet-lover, many wineries do not allow dogs in their tasting rooms - I cannot accommodate anyone who wants to bring their pet. There is limited flexibility with start and end times due to pandemic restrictions.

Armbänder herstellen in einem 100-jährigen Haus

I will also share some history of my 1890 building, including a copy of the handwritten deed to the original house.

First, you will hammer steel letter stamps to impress inspirational words, phrases, and designs of your choice onto a copper strip. Then, you will form the strip into a cuff bracelet with hammers and steel tools, oxidize (blacken) the metal, and polish to your desired finish.

Erkunde das Weiße Haus mit einem ehemaligem Kennedy-Mitarbeiter
This is a walking and history tour that walks the complete outside circumference of the gated portion of the White House. Prior to 09/11, as a former White House staffer, I could simply show my ID and take visitors in for a tour. That perk evaporated on 09/12/2001, and inside tours must be requested through a member of Congress. An external, walking tour is the next best thing to a tour inside, with my sharing features of major rooms in the White House, the West Wing, and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where my office was when I worked at the White House. In addition to the history of the building and stories about some of its occupants, you get the perspective of a former White House staffer who worked for two US presidents and on the campaigns of two candidates who did not win the presidency. I have met every president who has served during my lifetime, from FDR through the current president. The meet place is outside the White House Visitor Center, on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets, NW. The walk begins by passing through the recently dedicated National World War I Memorial, and proceeds past the Sherman Monument to the Ellipse on the side of the White House, with stories, photographs, and opportunities for questions. Continuing toward the official front of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we pass the first headquarters of the America
