Join us for a class with metalwork artist Robyn Cornelius

We are proud to present four classes with metal artist and instructor Robyn Cornelius! Robyn owns and operates Little Rock Jewellery Studio in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She is an explorer of materials and techniques, and describes her jewellery as sculptural and colourful, with clever mechanics and rustic finishes. She has a degree in Jewellery and Metals from the Alberta College of Art and Design.

Robyn as the ability to break what seems to be the most complicated project into workable steps that all can understand. I've had the opportunity to take two classes with Robyn at the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee and, as I'm NOT a metalworker, I must say I was able to make both projects and am proud to wear them!
