Upcoming Classes:

Guild Study Program at Colonial Williamsburg
January 27 – 30, 2023
Williamsburg, VA
I’m so excited to be teaching a class in Williamsburg, VA for the Guild in January 2023! I took a Guild Study Program class in Williamsburg in 2014 and it was such a great experience. In my class we’ll be making a Virginia Low Cupboard (circa 1680 – 1710) from the Colonial Williamsburg Museum collection. See the IGMA Website for more details.

2023 Guild School
June 10 – 17, 2023
Castine, Maine
Next June, I’ll be teaching a 36-hour class to make a 1/12th scale Philadelphia Double Chest at the International Guild of Miniature Artisans Guild School in Castine, Maine. I attended as a student this year, and taught an evening seminar. It’s just an incredible experience to be surrounded by so many like-minded (mini) people and so many talented artists in an historic seaside village in Maine. See the IGMA Website for more details. Registration is now open.
