I am hosting two workshops in the next few months with two master metalsmiths. The first, which will be held in Rockville, MD, is with Betty Helen Longhi, called Forming Techniques for Metal Jewelry. Betty Helen and co-author Cynthia Eid, have written the book, “Creative Metal Forming” which has been recognized as “a must for anyone interested in learning the craft of metal forming”. For more information about this workshop and how to register, please visit my workshop page

In April, I am hosting Victoria Lansford, along with Loretta Kaneshige, owner of Dream Catch Studio. Victoria will be teaching her High Relief Eastern Repousse workshop. Learn the secret of hammering metal into any shape or design of high or low relief with the technique of Eastern repoussé and chasing. This is the type of repousse used by the ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Scythian metalsmiths to achieve works of unsurpassed beauty. Make 2 pieces suitable as pendants or brooches and 1 finger ring.* Through the process you will learn how to achieve exquisite detail, unsurpassed depth, and multiple levels of relief that are exclusive to this type of repousse, yet applicable to any type of design you can imagine. To learn more about the workshop and or to register, please visit Dream Catch Studio.

I hope you can join us for one of these amazing workshops!
