This Wednesday January 20th is the first week of Suzanne Crudden's 8 week Metalwork for Beaders class. There are only a few spaces left! In this class rather than focusing on the technical aspects of professional metalsmithing we will focus on having some fun with metal. Students will learn traditional techniques as well, such as, how to saw, pierce and solder metal. Our focus will be not be project based but on skills that you will be able to practice at home with your own work.
