There are some workshops in Florida during the summer, but maybe not
as many in the cooler months.
Please check the web site of
This links to all the chapters of Florida Society of Goldsmiths
(FSG). Check the Northeast Chapter link as they always have ongoing
classes in which to participate. There is also the Northwest Chapter,
but you have to link to that chapter to find what is going on this
summer with that chapter. They do offer classes during the year.
Workshops sponsored by FSG are held out of Florida in North Carolina
in late June and again this year, Masters in the Mountains, in
October. The workshops held at the Wildacres in Western North
Carolina are fabulous. You do not have to be a resident of Florida,
by the way, to be a member of FSG; if you live out of state or out of
the country you are considered a member at large and not attached to
any chapter. Another place to check out what classes are being held
during July and August is to check
they are located in West Palm Beach. Since you did not state in which
area you were going to be staying, it is hard to give you any more
leads about classes. The first two are just to get you started. Hope
this will help.
