Classes

Ready to try your hand at the jeweler’s bench?  Whether you need a refresher from your high school jewelry class, or are a total beginner, I can help you learn how to make your own jewelry.  Choose between community art center classes, weekend workshops on specific topics, or private, individualized lessons.  There is something for everyone!

Peggy is so patient and [she] explains everything.  This class really helped me improve my soldering!”  –Beginning Jewelry student, Fall 2013

Beginning Jewelry at Pratt Fine Art Center – Sunday nights, 6-9pm.  For total beginners, and those who need a refresher.  For Fall 2014 we are trying out a 10-week format, with shorter class sessions that end earlier (instead of 10pm).  This structure will allow students more Friday open studio sessions, which are invaluable independent practice time.  Next session starts Sept 21st.

Mechanisms: Hinges and Clasps at Pratt Fine Art Center – Weekend workshop.  Learn how to add movement and functionality to your jewelry creations with this fun and challenging class!  Next session Nov 29-30.

Private Lessons – If you are looking for 1-on-1 coaching or want to learn a specific skill or technique, private lessons might be right for you.  Held in my jewelry studio in Pioneer Square.  I can accommodate up to 2 students per session.  Contact me for details!

Home Studio Consultation – Need some expert advice on setting up your own studio?  I am available to do an assessment of your space and your existing equipment, to help you identify any gaps in your set-up and plan what tools to buy next — and possibly offer some tips for how to use what you already have or can readily get.  Send me a note and let me know you need a house-call!
