ON LINE CLASSES

INTRO TO METALSMITHING SERIES

The Intro to Metalsmithing Series is a beginning level jewelry class that will provide you with a thorough and solid foundation of metalsmithing. The Series is divided into 4 individual classes so you can take each part when you are ready.  This is also great if you have taken a class before and are looking to brush up on a skill.  Each part builds on the previous section so they assume you have the skills from the prior lessons.  

By the end of this series you will have the knowledge to set up a small home studio and basic metalsmithing skills allowing you to go on to take more intermediate level classes.

Each class in The Intro Series is $50 or you can choose the bundle of all 4 classes for $175.  With your purchase you are able to join our private KP Studio Facebook student community where you can ask questions to our instructors and talk to other students.
