I live in the Berkshires and wanted to change my kscope style from
stained glass to more of a metal working “thing.” Jewelry classes
give the basics of metal working, and other assorted skills. I
signed up two different times with the Interlaken School in
Stockbridge Mass, which holds many classes, some of which are in
jewelry. Each time I signed up, beginner classes, I would be the
only attendee, therefore the class was canceled. I gave up on
Interlaken, can’t fault the school if no one signs up.
I happened upon an advertisement in the Berkshires Shoppers Guide for
a jeweler giving lessons. I called her up and started taking
lessons, one on one. As typical with me I took several lessons,
bought my own equipment, and am practicing, practicing, and
practicing. Her price was very reasonable, believe me I am not rich
and I couldn’t believe how reasonable she was. She first shows
several different techniques of jewelry making and you pick what you
want to learn. She is a wealth of and I have learned a
lot from her. She is also very patient, and just smiles when you say
crap or darn. She is located in Great Barrington Mass.
She may answer you, as she belongs to this service also…must
say, thanks Barbara for all your help (AKA my instructor).
You can e:mail me if you want her number.
