Recently on one of my HIP District walking tours, we ran into Sawdust exhibitor and found metal sculpture artist, James "Shamus" Koch. He took my group to his studio where he keeps his metal scraps and showed us where he creates and teaches classes. Every tour is a little different, depending on who we run into in town.

My wife and I met Shamus at the Sawdust Festival last August, then took his introductory welding class together at his Laguna studio just yesterday. Shamus is a gifted, inspiring teacher and a really nice guy. We had a fun day welding stuff together and each of us managed to make a piece of garden art that, with his guidance, came out better than we ever would have expected. Get in touch with him if you want to meet a very interesting person, learn to weld, and see some of his beautiful art pieces.
