The Rock House is making a nice little habit of hosting artists & makers with pop up and trunk show events. We love helping artists gain exposure and giving small businesses a stepping stone and a venue to sell their goods. We thought it would be nice to start introducing you to the makers we bring in.
Jason Anderson with JAH Works will be making roses live at The Rock House Friday, February 3rd from 10-4. Please swing by the shop to watch him work his magic. He will be making and putting the finishing touches on the roses, for those who would like to purchase this one of a kind, hand made gift for a friend or loved one.
We wanted to know more about Jason, his work and how he got his start.
TRH: How did you get started?
JAH: "I was doing woodworking at the time I discovered the art. I was making fine furniture, cabinetry, stairs and such. I needed a branding iron, so I took a class at Creative Ironworks a couple of years ago to do that, and immediately fell in love with the process and art through that class. I decided to change my profession on the spot."
TRH: What are your passions?
JAH: " To make art and get my name out there."
TRH: Where can others learn the process?
JAH: " We have adult classes (ages 15 and up) for basic ornamental blacksmithing, metal fabrication and welding classes. We have the Young Blacksmiths Association (YBA) for ages 9-14 in the Basics of Blacksmithing. Check out The Artistry and www.creativeironworks.net for more info on classes."
TRH: Where can someone go to see or buy your work?
TRH: What are your favorite things about Greenville?
Thanks Jason for giving us a moment to get to know you a bit! We loved meeting with such a driven and creative spirit. Swing by The Rock House Antiques Feb. 3rd to see Jason do his thing.
