Join us on Monday evenings from 6:30pm-8:30pm and learn the basic silversmithing skills. During this FOUR week session from November 16th - December 7th, you will create two projects.

All materials for the class will be provided. There will be two trays of stones to choose from to make your stone selection.
All you have to do is come and have some fun! Feel free to bring a notebook and take notes if you're a note taker. If you have long hair, you will be required to have it pulled back. For safety reasons, please avoid wearing loose clothing, scarves, etc as they can be a fire hazard.
