Women and Silver Retreat: Creating, Learning & Sharing – G200142

Workshop ID: G200142
Dates: January 26, 2020 - February 8, 2020
Price: $2,095.00 - $2,625.00

This open studio format is a unique opportunity for advanced silversmiths to try ideas or develop new techniques. The value of free, unstructured studio access is what makes these two weeks so unique and wonderful. Women and Silver Retreat: Creating, Learning & Sharing allows everyone the time to grow and focus on their own goals while leaving room for the unexpected lessons that will inevitably arise in this group setting. It is also a gift as we all learn from and with each other. We are so looking forward to facilitating this open studio and another wonderful adventure with stone and metal shared with special friends. Open to advanced silversmiths only. When your registration is received you will receive a survey call from an instructor.
