Sara Josh Buchan currently lives on Guam in the Western Pacific. After her husband died, she traveled to Colorado where her brother lived in search of something to do and stumbled onto the ACC Jewelry Class and a great bunch of friends.
She prefers to work with copper and after seeing Torch Painted Copper items in a street fair in Vancouver, she searched out a way to learn how to do it herself. Traveling to Arkansas, she found a couple that had been doing it for 30 years at street fairs and Folk Centers. She spent a week learning from them and then practiced over and over again to finally enjoy what she had learned and now enjoys sharing this technique with everyone in Colorado who wants to try it.
