I am new to Ganoksin. thanks to member I recently met. I have been
studying silversmithing in Mexico for the passed 5 months... in Taxco
and San Miquel Allende. I am looking to continue my learning in a
small school or private setting in the USA for the next 2-3 months. I
have leaned a lot and have so much more to learn. I have designed and
made about 25 piece so far however I am still very keen on the
basics. Soldering. proper material choices and repair/ preparation.
The design end will come in time. I an open to any region in the US.
I am from Wolfville Nova Scotia and will make my way back there after
his final stop on my tour, Please contact me if you know of an
opportunity to do this.
I will be leave Mexico 29th of March...(visa has expired !)
cheers and thanks; David Spence

There are several possibilities on the East Coast that I can think
of right off the bat, that offer ongoing classes: Metalwerx, in
Waltham, MA, and North Bennett Street School, in Boston, MA. NBSS
offers a certificate program; Metalwerx does not.
For workshops: Snow Farm; the New England Craft Program. Metalwerx
also offers workshops.
On the West Coast- Revere Academy.
Hope this is useful,

Email me off list. I'm in Moncton and I do give classes, one-on-one

want or need.
