And so it begins… my life as a student!

The School of Restoration Arts at Willowbank

I must say, I’m a little bit apprehensive, as it’s been so many years since I was last in school.  When I was first looking into Willowbank, I was told that I was their ‘typical‘ student – an adult looking at starting a second career.  However, when meeting my class mates today, I realized that I probably have 10 years on the majority of them.  Well, at least there are a couple of others who are in my age group.

We’ve been given our schedule for the first term, and have a number of interesting courses coming up.  We’ll be jumping right in this first week with a dry stone walling course.  Sounds like my idea of fun!

While not directly blacksmith-related, I’ll be blogging a bit about my school experiences.  And so I’ve added a new category for those posts entitled “Student Life”.
