I'd come out in May. Is there any indications on dates for the RMH/tinker's event?

Ben, I won't be hosting a Peasant Workshop in May, but you're welcome to come out in May as a gapper on Ava. Many, though not all, of the same activities will be going on. Plus it's only $80. If you follow the link to sign up it will give you an option to sign up as a gapper. It says 3 weeks because that's how long you'd need to gap in order to get into the workshop and festival for free, but you can stay for as short a time as you please, (or if we get along, as long as you please.) I'll be posting to explain about Ava's gapper program in more depth soon.
