WIP Wednesday


Many of you who are reading this blog probably know that I am a lawyer by profession, which means I have long seen the Laurel path through a similar lens, with junior associates and apprentices/unbelted artisans working on projects with partners and peers in order to improve their knowledge and skill sets with a view to someday making partner or Laurel and setting up their own workshop.  I’m formatting my WIP blog posts like I would format a bill for legal services and I’m trying to convey information about the types of steps involved in a project and the amount of time that you as an artisan might want to give yourself to work on a similar project.  This week is the first week of blogging that I had other artisans working with me in a supporting/learning role, so I’ve tried to also reflect the time that they spent on the projects they helped me on.
