New Classes Just Posted

We just finished posting several new classes and workshops including some really exciting guest teachers!

Love the look of gold, but not the price? Keum-Boo is the ancient art of applying gold foil to silver in jewelry-making. It is surprisingly easy to do and can take your jewelry to a new level of sophistication. Choose from two available dates for this class.

Or how about picking up some versatile metalsmithing skills while making a pair of dramatic, modern, mixed-metal cymbal earrings with Rose Pabon.
