2021 Metalsmithing Classes/Special Events 

~Hello Friends!   Well 2020 was certainly a disappointment for all of us creative-makers with workshop cancellations 
due to the Covid pandemic.  Last fall I had been holding a few home studio workshops "socially distanced" to students
that I know which went well.  I have now joined the "Virtual" Zoom based teaching trend with the Virtually
EverCrafting Workshop listed below.   My workshops offer a variety of metal smithing projects 
involving techniques such as fabrication, soldering, fold forming, and etching.  

For those of you saddened by the end of the Bead & Button Show why not treat yourself to one of my
Metalwork Jewelry Bootcamps which are 5 day self paced workshops.
  • Enjoy the calm of Washington Island, WI  and Lake Michigan at Sievers School of Fiber Arts.
  • New venue for 2021 visit Wild Rice Retreat (Bayfield,  WI) along the shore of Lake Superior!

Check out the complete class descriptions, photos and supplies lists at each website.   I typically provide 
all tools required except of course with virtual events.  Private instruction is available at my studio (Stoughton, WI) or now 
Virtually!  Let me know if you would like to be added to my student email list or if you have any questions.
