When kids sneak into inventor Wayne Szalinski's upstairs lab to retrieve an errant baseball, his experimental shrink ray miniaturizes them. When Szalinski returns home, he destroys the device -- which he thinks is a failure -- and dumps it in the trash, throwing out the kids along with it. The four children, now 1/4-inch tall, must survive the journey back to the house through a yard where sprinklers bring treacherous storms and garden-variety ants stampede like elephants.

Steve says: A self-described “tongue in cheek religious painter”, Joe Lafone once had a dream where God commanded him to paint endless images of Grandfather Mountain, a credible still life, and to Iron his shirts. As Joe states, “Two out of three ain’t bad.” I have painted and exhibited with Joe for 18 years. Together we hung shows in street fairs, restaurants, galleries, museums and yes, tattoo parlors.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Adults, teens, or children accompanied by an adult
We will prepare a gourd, paint or etch on the gourd, string the beaded skirt around it and learn one rhythm & song on the instrument. Beads, wooden, ceramic, and pony plastic beads will be used. Other objects like seashells may be woven in -however, if they are breakable the instrument may become more a work of art than a playable instrument. African shekeres may use nut shells, seashells or hard seeds in the design. Bead colors are an individual choice.
If participants do not complete the instrument in one session it is possible to continue to work on it at home.
