About the Workshops
This year from Sunday, June 1, through Tuesday, June 4, we are offering five Master Classes (with instruction from Celie Fago, Marcia DeCoster, Sage Holland, Beau Anderson, Linda Darty, and Anne Mitchell), five Fundamentals in Techniques sessions, and more than 100 intensive Workshops for beginner to advanced jewelry makers. Master Classes, Fundamentals, and workshops vary in number of days, so please check the individual sessions.
We’ve scheduled all of our workshops with longer hours than our general classes to give teachers more time to cover a variety of techniques or to focus on an advanced or complex technique. Workshops typically have fewer students in each session than our regular classes giving teachers more time to spend with each student.
General Education Classes
From Wednesday, June 5, to Monday, June 10, students can choose from more than 600 general education classes. These classes run from three to six hours, allowing students to sample an assortment of subjects and still have time to shop. Longer classes include a break for shopping and lunch. Check the start and end times of your classes; they vary by the day of the week – and don’t forget our Encore performance with Sherry Serafini, Monday, June 10.
