This class is open to 10 ladies who want to learn about how to create art from metal. We will have scrap on hand for you to create a project to take home at the end of the second day. There is the possibility that you can bring your own scrap if you want to incorporate something you already have but you will need to send pictures so we can advise on the project.

Joanie and Karen will also have project options for you to pick from in case you don’t know what you would like to do.

During the course of both days Joanie will be raffling away example pieces to the participants. You’ll get your very own ‘Joanie Butler Artwork’ for coming to the event!
