Upcoming Classes

Students have asked me to provide a list of my upcoming classes, so I will try to keep such a list current.

I will be teaching a three-day workshop at the Peninsula Art Center in Door County, Wisconsin ( July 28-30. Here is the class description:

Casting in a Flash

Imagine creating finished cast pieces in unique organic shapes in record time! That’s just what you can do in this exploration of casting methods both ancient and modern, with no carving, no previous skill necessary—and almost no time! Sand casting, water casting and broom straw casting are among the fun, fast, easy and inexpensive methods you will try in this three-day class. Use leftover silver scrap from previous projects! Silver will also be available for purchase from the instructor. You may bring small hard objects such as twigs to duplicate with sand casting. Finishing and adding bails and findings will also be covered.
