Don't sugar coat it so much Dan, tell us how you really feel!
What a non supportive response to someone's enthusiasm about attending a workshop. A note of caution is one thing but the "after mom is gone" was a bit too much. Just make sure you don't breath or drink the dichromate doing gum, or splash the bleach in your eye when toning, or get electrocuted when using a mercury vapor printer or get hit by a car on the way to the work shop or .....

Hi All, I am looking to take a tintype workshop. It
could be in New York or Texas. Can anyone recommend
one? (grandparents are in both states , so I have free
baby sitting for my kids!)
Thank you kindly,
