Please Note:

Beginning Jewelry covers the fundamentals of metalsmithing.  Each class builds on the week before so missing a class can be challenging.  In particular, missing week 4 which covers the soldering foundation will set you behind.  Your options to make up a class are: 

1.  make it up with another beginning jewelry class, although you may have to wait for awhile depending on the schedule.

2.  schedule and pay for an hour private lesson
