Please visit these folks who generously give of their time to show us other ways to enjoy our hobby.

In keeping with our core mission to educate and inspire, we are pleased to bring you again the fascinating opportunity to see GMSS members and friends practicing their art as they work with the materials our planet provides. Each has their own booth area on the main floor and will be holding demonstrations and displaying their art throughout the weekend.
