A huge thank you to everyone who came out for POST 2012! We had a great crowd and really appreciate you all taking the time to come see the space and check out what we are up to!

Another big thanks to the amazing and fabulous volunteers that are helping to make PSG happen...Molly, Brynn, Jenny, Jen and Gus, this weekend and this place would not happen without you! A special thanks to Gus for teaching everyone the casting process. We did 9 pours in 2 days: 7 aluminum and 2 bronze, poured by 5 different people (including 2 newbies, Rose and Kriss!) Check out the photos below to see some of the process!
