2015 Workshops

I am so excited to announce that I finally have some workshops on the schedule. I am going to be teaching in Tucson again. I will be teaching at Potter USA again this year. Kevin has been so gracious and allows me to teach in his shop after hours. So all of the workshops will be from 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm. The dates are not finalized yet, but they will all be within February 1 – 8. Want to see the classes? Of course you do. Well, here they are.

What? You aren’t going to be in Tucson? How about Texas?

Roadhouse Arts Studio and Gallery are hosting a week long jewelry retreat at the Sage Hill in near Austin Texas in March. My good Friend Francesca Watson is one of the gallery’s owners and she has invited me to be one of the guest instructors. I will be joining Connie Fox, Francesca Watson and Gail Stouffer as we journey through the creative design process. What can be more fun than a full week of nothing but tools, creativity and beautiful scenery? Workshop Dates: March 1 – 6, 2015. 

They opened registration just this afternoon and I believe they are nearly half full already. So don’t delay if you are considering it. For more information, check out their website: http://www.roadhousearts.com/spring-2015-jewelry-retreat/
