We are thrilled to offer this week long class in my home studio. It is six intense days of fun, learning and doing. On Saturday and Sunday we will start with our Beginning Silversmithing Class where you will learn the fundamentals of silver soldering and creating a fabulous contemporary or southwestern styled Pendant and a set of Stud Earrings. In Intermediate Silversmithing on Monday you will create a Dual Split Band Ring and on Tuesday an Interchangeable Bracelet. By Tuesday evening you will know how to make the four most requested types of jewelry. Wednesday we will get you started selling in our “How to Make Money Selling Your Jewelry Creations Class”. Thursday we will finish up by showing you how and setting up an online store at Shopify.com. The details of each of the classes are at the links below the pictures.

In addition to the learning and doing, you will take home our 22 hour video DVD sets of Beginning Silversmithing and Intermediate Rings and Bracelets. You will also be subscribed to same content in our Online Streaming Videos usable on Kendal’s, tablets, Smart Phones, Laptops and any web browser. You will also receive A new set of Silversmithing tools to continue applying what you learned in class. The tools, DVD’s and Online Streaming videos are valued at $1052.00.

We will be furnishing accommodations and meals, a continental breakfast, lunch, and a full evening meal from Friday night the day before the retreat starts until Friday morning the day after the retreat ends. The planes only fly into North Bend, Oregon  airport code OTH  (not Bend and not close to Portland) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in fall and winter  and usually six days a week during summer via multiple airlines. We will pick you up from the North Bend Airport and deliver you back. If you want to stay longer we may be a able to arrange for you keep to the accommodations and/or get you to a rental car dealer or hotel. Some awesome activities that are popular in our area are deep sea fishing, Salmon and Steelhead fishing, dune buggy rental and dune excursions, antique shopping, golfing, hiking at over 100 parks and many other activities.

The accommodations are lake view and lake front homes on beautiful Saunders Lake & Ten Mile Lake, near North Bend on Oregon’s Pacific Coast. They are only a mile from the beach as the crow flies and you will enjoy hearing the waves in the evening. The area has a Mediterranean climate that usually averages between low of 55 and high of 65 degrees..  You will be close to the Oregon Dunes National Park and may hear an occasional dune buggy go by. To keep the cost down on accommodations you may be sharing a house, not a room, with other students. Six students is the maximum number of students in the silversmithing portions of this retreat.

We are also about 45 minutes from the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in case you have a family or friend that might want to join you but is not interested in attending the classes. The golf course there are spectacular. If you have any questions please give me a call.   916 548-7361
