What is the cost of the 6 week class and is it possible to take the intermediate (prerequisite) and the advanced at the same time? Are the classes all day every day?
Thanks for your interest in my classes Lori! I do occasionally have students taking two levels of classes at the same time. It it discussed with the student prior to enrollment. More common is the student taking both a wire and metalsmithing class in the same session as the skills learned enhance the applications of both studies. Structured for the hobbyist, my classes - offered through the Dunedin and Morean Fine Art Centers - are 18 hours total and run for 3 hours per session once a week for 6 weeks.
