ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
The statehood ring was always the first venture of I.G.W.M. So it only makes sense to start there with everyone attending this workshop! Elijah is going to give you a glimpse into his first product as a maker. He’ll be walking you through the learning the process behind punching your own custom ring at the right size (and state) that works for you. Come out, learn the art behind I.G.W.M.’s staple product and spend some time learning from the man who made it all happen.
WHAT TO BRING:
Yourself, your hands (preferably).
WHAT YOU GET:
Bring home your own statehood quarter ring (state of your choice).
GET TO KNOW IN GOD WE MUST.
In God We Must was unintentionally started by John Elijah Richards in the summer of 2014 out of necessity, with no real name or mission in mind other than to provide a source of income to pay for medical expenses. Shortly after losing his job, and health benefits, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Coming from a lowly and desperate state of mind, he decided to take matters into his own hands and overcome his circumstance. Turning to his creative side of life, Elijah started making rings for friends and family to pay for insulin and diabetic supplies. The rest of the story is an outcome of a positive state of mind, and lots of help from loving friends and strangers.
