Take a look at the wide variety of products, processes, and techniques that are featured in our Rio In Motion Demo Room!
Rio In Motion
Rio In Motion has us all abuzz! We have been excited to have our visitors here at the Rio facility. In addition to hosting classes led by world-class instructors, we’ve enjoyed just showing off our place. If you, gentle reader, ever come to Albuquerque, be sure to drop by and see us firsthand. We’d love to show you around our warehouse and manufacturing facility. But for now, I thought you might enjoy a virtual tour.
It was a day of celebration at Rio In Motion, in more ways than one! Students finished a series of two-day jewelry-making classes begun on Wednesday and got a chance to successfully apply new techniques to several pieces of jewelry. And on the lighter side, one Rio In Motion attendee got quite the birthday surprise when her sister contacted us to deliver a gift certificate (and as much embarrassment as we could create) on her behalf. What else are sisters for?
Rio In Motion began early this morning, with shuttle drivers picking up instructors and students from local area hotels. Shuttles arrived at Rio Grande in time for students to enjoy a spread of tools and toys to play with in our Will Call area. Benches with Swanstrom tools, Fretz hammers, the latest and greatest optics, the newest PMC® kilns, a Bonny Doon press and accessories, and a smattering of steel stamps and hammering tools greeted our students when they arrived, ready to be picked up and played with.
Today, January 26, marks the opening day of our first-ever Rio In Motion event (Jan 26-31). We’re excited because we’ll be seeing many familiar faces and looking forward to meeting others for the first time! We welcome your visit to Rio, look forward to showing you how we manufacture your products and fill your orders – and how it’s all powered by over 5000 solar panels!
Preparing for any special event entails a great deal of hustle and bustle. Preparing for Rio in Motion, which begins January 26 here at our Albuquerque facility, has been quite a fun production so far. Imagine moving your office, your studio, and your home all at once. It’s been a little like that here at Rio Grande…
