7/18/2020 FUSED BANGLE CLASS WITH JASON ON ZOOM
SATURDAY, JULY 18 AT 4PM
*Quick update as we change our class policy in terms of how we charge for them. The recent pandemic and quarantine required us to quickly adapt to relying on our online business, which was exciting and stressful with all the new opportunities of how we can communicate with you!
At the onset, we offered many of our classes for free, and some free with the purchase of supplies. We plan on continuing many FREE classes for our mutual enjoyment, and will resume charging for other classes at a nominal fee rate to stay in business!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support as we move forward to LIVE! LOVE! and CREATE! with you! Yay!
This class is $30 each and includes a live teacher and recording thereafter. You may ask questions during the live, as well as show your work to the teacher during the live, for review and feedback.
Zoom class replays will be available on YouTube as private videos, and available for $15.

Play with a tiny fire AND hammer out some stress while making a beautiful bangle!
Jason will teach you to successfully fuse fine silver wire in large gauges of wire, and cover different finishes with our 30+ specialty hammers.
Fusing is similar to soldering in that it uses a tiny torch to melt metal, but I personally think it is cleaner and requires fewer tools and steps. Here's what Jason requires that you have to start fusing! If you want to speak with him to get all the tools and supplies, give us a call at the store! 808-589-2600
