If you missed my one day enamel workshop don't despair, I'm teaching another one in November. Here are the following offerings:

Sunday Oct. 17th 10-4
Hunterdon Museum of Art, Clinton, NJ

Felt and Metal Beads Workshop
In this class you will learn to create three-dimensional felt beads. We will use needle felting to blend and layer colored wool for painterly or geometric designs and then wet felt to firm the beads. Basic metal skills of punching circles, drilling, dapping, sawing and wire wrapping will enable you to make metal end caps to finish off your beads. You will complete several beads to incorporate into a necklace.

Sunday Oct.24 10-4
Newark Museum

The BIG Press: Using the Hydraulic Press to Create Hollow Form Pendants
