  Steve & Kay Grosvenor

I have been making creative pieces and custom knives for over 20 years. I appeared on the History Channel on a show called Forged in Fire where I won the title of champion for my Charay sword. I have always been interested in art and learning. Teaching a metal art class is a great outlet for creativity and making heirloom pieces that you can be proud of.

Creativity and Intuition are passions of mine. I have for as long as I can remember had creativity at the core of what I do and I’ve always had a deep need to help others. I believe creativity is an innate part of our being. Unfortunately we stop putting importance on this aspect of ourselves as we become adults. We end up missing so much by putting our creative nature and imagination on the back burner.

Allow me to assist you in connecting back to your core element of creativity and intuition. I currently conduct 1:1 healing sessions in person and over the phone, or create with your friends through an art from the heart party.

I currently have certifications in Theta Healing (basic, advanced and manifesting and abundance).

I am a born and raised, South Dakota gal. Aside from a short 6 year stint in Minnesota, I’ve made it back to my home state to connect with people on a higher mission to help others connect to their own creative (intuitive) state.

I live a short 30 minutes from Sioux Falls SD, and enjoy spending time aside from work with family and my beautiful kitties. I am enlivened to help others find their highest calling. Find more about me at my website

LandShark Scuba
I have been a certified diver for 13 years and have been teaching diving for 10 years. I developed a passion for diving almost immediately from my first experience underwater and fell in love with the wonders of the underwater world. Now I just so thoroughly enjoy sharing those wonders with others, but teaching kids is my favorite! Diving became such an important part of my life that I opened a dive ship in the upper midwest. Local diving as well as tropical are high on my list of entertainment! Watch Life with Laura and your instructor! Discover Scuba Diving with Colonel and KDLT Laura

Natalie Sorenson
I'm Natalie Sorenson. I've been drawn to creative play forever. I caught the jewelry bug in my mother's cellar studio and later took metallurgy in OH, where I received my degree in fashion design. The beauty of handmade jewelry comes from an artist's own signature hammer blows, torch strokes, and aesthetic, and going elemental with precious metals and soldering is the cathartic step in making so much possible. JoeBobLeigh is my label for handmade jewelry, where it has sold from Sticks & Steel to Mall of America. Some of my artistic haunts are Painted Prairie, 1st Lutheran Church, St. Mark's Church, Soul Movement Studio, the Butterfly House and Knitter's Magazine. I've taught sewing, tie-dye, painting, baton, knitting, as well as jewelry. JOE'S Garage is where I have been teaching jewelry classes to like-minded earthy artsy sorts since 2011. I have lived in Sioux Falls since 1990 with my husband, where we raised our 3 daughters.
