In fact, we still have 8 free spots in the French workshop (but places 
are filling up quite fast).

I appreciate your suggestion Rob-Tom to expand the workshops but I don't 
think this is possible as things are allready expanded to the max.
In fact all started by Coralie and I wanting to join a Steens workshop 
at Canelo. We then figured we might as well fly them here to teach a 
workshop instead of us flyin' to the States.
It then turned into a 2 month European tour (mostly organized by Lars 
Keller). But the Steens want to go home after 2 months (seems they 
really like America ;-) and in Europe it is not legal to work day & 
night. So we figured that 4 workshops in 2 months leaving a timeschedule 
that allows Bill & Athena to actually enjoy being on the road is a good 

All the best,
