I taught jewelry and metalworking in Santa Barbara City College's adult-ed program for 12 years before moving to the Bay Area.
Those were wonderful years, with wonderful students, in a spectacular studio.

The studio is still there, at the Wake Center, on Turnpike Rd.
The building started life as a 1950's era elementary school.
Looks like not much has changed...
Don't be so quick to judge. Come inside and take a look around.
