Thought you might enjoy a shot of one of our favorite friends, Pam Reynolds, in all of her floral glory. She was recently featured as #31 on the list of Style Magazine's "2009 Power List." We love all that Pam does for Richmond and have a suspicion that her felt collar (oh, from Quirk?) has helped add to her superhero status.

It is time for another art adventure at Quirk!
Maggie is teaching a workshop for kids ages 5 to 12. The idea is to create a friend out of clay. We are gonna squish, pinch, pull, and tug on a lump of clay until we have found a creature. At the second session of the workshop (after the critters come out of the kiln) we will use recycled materials to create a habitat for our new friends. This is a two day workshop taking place on Monday August 10th and Monday August 17th from 10 am to 12pm. There is only space for 6 kids so give Maggie a call or email to sign up. $35 each child. All materials and a snack included. Quirk 804-644-5450 firstname.lastname@example.org

This weekend was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came out for Noah's book signing this past Saturday. The fan submitted skulls were an added bonus to the already spectacular day!
We are looking forward to Noah's free children's event: SKULLS FOR KIDS, scheduled to take place on August 8th FROM 10am-12pm. Kids will be able to engage with the project by making skulls of their own from a wide range of materials.

never ceases to amaze me. We are working on a project requiring 52 things to do in Richmond. We teamed up with @MidtownRVA on twitter to see what people thought. The response has been overwhelming. Obviously we are passionate about hitting the (Mid)town, and we are glad to see that so many others are as well!
