I learned gum at VSW (for a whole week) in 1977, I think it was. I do
remember quite clearly that Deborah Flynn  taught the workshop. She had
published a great little book on gum too. Very sadly, a couple of years
later, one of my students felt that Deborah's book was of more use to them
than to me and relieved me of it - permanently.
Deborah Flynn may well have been at VSW throughout the 70's. I have never
come across her work, but then I dont live in the USA.

Have a great time in Rochester!
