Welcome Raven Decee to the Studio. Mother & Daughter Teaming Up!


Private Metalsmith Lessons for Ladies

I currently have openings for classes in May and June.

Contact me at loraleeartist@gmail.com to set up the perfect time and day. Can have up to two students at a time for any class. My shop is just not big enough to allow more at this time. These classes are great for teens and up. Women only but I will make exceptions on a as needed basis. Sorry guys, I just feel more comfortable working with the ladies. <3


Enameling Class - Beginners Class

Fee per person is $50. Class lasts about 2-3  hours. Less if you catch on fast, more if we are both talkers.

  • We will start with a demo of how enameling is done, explaining the steps of the process from start to finish. Then you will each create your own enameled coin pendant. Tools and supplies we will be working with... Rolling mill, powdered enamels, coins, MAPP gas torch, cordless drill, files, and the Dremel to polish. Photo is an example of enameling. We will be working with coins only.

Fold Forming Class - Beginners Class

$50 each student - Classes last about 2-3 hours Less if you catch on fast, more if we are both talkers.

  • We will start by watching a demo of how I create a leaf using copper sheet. I use salvaged copper gutter metal for this project. I will then walk each student step by step thru the process of creating their own leaf. You will go home with your work. It can be used as a pendant, hang from your car mirror, or used as small wall art. Your choice. Tools we'll be using...anvil, hammers, copper, vinegar, MAPP gas torch.

All classes must be paid for in advance. Nonrefundable.

I will provide all supplies needed for these classes.

If you have long hair it will need to be securely tied back out of the way, no long sleeve loose clothing.

All you have to do is show up, prepared to have fun, play with fire, get a little dirty and go home with knowledge of metalsmithing and your finished projects.

I will be adding more classes at a later date.

These classes are for ages 15 and up. Women only but I will make exceptions on a as needed basis. Sorry guys, I just prefer sharing my knowledge with the ladies. <3
