A&S 50 Challenge
A&S 50 Challenge
The 50 Year Challenge is about making 50 of something.  It could be 50 of a new art, 50 of a complex item, or 50 different items in a single theme.  Some are concentrating on breath of work in a particular era or place, others are concentrating on depth in a particular field such as metal work or weaving.  Whatever you decide to do, it is about challenging yourself to learn and do more.  Below are some pictures and links to some of the current 50 year challenge participants.  If you would like to be featured, tell us what your challenge is, and give us a link to where we can send people for more pictures, and we will post it here.  Contact .
