The stars aligned perfectly.
The fine folks at Notre Dame offered a free workshop featuring Chris Gustin on April 5th and 6th. Ordinarily I would have missed this fine opportunity. Or I would have had to take a personal day (or two!) from teaching but this workshop happened to be right in the middle of my spring break.
So Tuesday morning I packed my bag and set out for Notre Dame. I parked off campus and made the 10 minute walk to Riley Hall. As I came in the door, I found Bill Kremer coming down the stairs. He pointed me to the ceramics area.
