Heidi Lowe Gallery is hosting a series of jewelry making classes this winter and spring. Classes are held from 6-9 p.m., Wednesdays.
"I will teach you the skill of jewelry-making, and you will walk out the door with a unique piece of jewelry," Lowe said. "This is a creative way to treat yourself, treat a friend, or treat a loved one to something special.”
Each class will focus on a specific skill in the jewelry-making process. The remaining classes are: April 3 - Layered pendant, April 17 - Beach glass pendant, April 24 - Structured earrings, May 1 - Set a stone and May 8 - Make a ring.
Classes are for people of all abilities, and children as young as 12 may sign up. Private parties of up to nine people can be accommodated. All classes include at least three hours in the studio and the materials to make a sterling silver piece of jewelry, which each participant can wear out the door. The class cost is $100 per person, plus a materials fee of $20-$100 depending on the chosen course. For questions about scheduling or to reserve a class, contact the gallery at 302-227-9203.
