Last Saturday I taught a workshop at Morven Museum in Princeton, NJ as part of the Arts Council of Princeton’s offerings. It was the first class I’ve taught there and the class went extremely well after one major glitch! It was supposed to be a basic soldering class and the Museum wouldn’t allow an open flame. I guess that should have been obvious from the beginning but it never got discussed. After seeing the beautiful Museum and 18oo’s paintings on the wall I realized that there was no way a soldering class should ever take place there.

So, making lemonade from lemons……it became a cold connection class. Everyone made beautiful earrings, without soldering! They learned to stamp, texture, wire wrap and use jump rings to make their pieces.
