Upcoming Master Artist Workshops
The Expressive Jeweler-Inspiration to ManifestationWith Lesley Aine McKeownDecember 1 – 4 10:00am – 5:30pm
This class is not project based, it’s about what is personal to you. All art begins with inspiration. In this class we will begin by looking at how what you see and how you feel influences your work and how to use design principles to create jewelry that is your voice not someone else’s. You will be encouraged to push yourself and design a piece outside your comfort zone.
Upcoming Events

Form + Fire is an exhibition featuring current clay students. Be sure and come by and marvel at the beautiful pieces created by this ancient technique.
