A six week class one evening a week designed for intermediate and advanced students. Enrolled students will bring three design ideas for their project to the first class. After discussion each student will choose one for the class project and prepare a plan of action. Together in class we will prepare an order for materials. The next five weeks will be studio time to put your plan into action with an instructor close at hand to answer questions that arise. During the last class we will take photos of your final pieces and have a
lessons-learned / critique discussion.
