I've teamed up with an amazing designer to create my most comprehensive, non-traditional metal-smithing class to date! The popular five week online class has been compiled in its entirety and is available now. Over 30 instructional videos have been combined with detailed technique instruction, companion PDF's and an extensive Q&A section to create a metalsmithing course like no other. We've created this e-book with ease-of-access at the top of the list of priorities and in so doing, we've formated the entire class on DVD as an interactive PDF (e-book) for you to view, print from and reference any time you want without it permanently taking up precious space on your computer.
I love the spirit of Homesteading - of making a beloved home out of materials that are readily available, of taking simple, multipurpose tools and creating works of art with incredible function and beauty without the use of the latest and greatest trendy supply. In this e-book, I guide you, in the same spirit that a homesteader employs to create a garden of Eden, in learning the techniques that will allow you to forge up your own jewelry, book covers, boxes, assemblages and so much more.

"I was very apprehensive about an online course, but it has far exceeded my expectations. You have a great teaching style--the videos were amazing and packed full of information. I loved learning all the techniques but I have to say my favorite part of the course was the information you gave us when things don't always go perfectly and what to do to salvage the piece. As a result I didn't have a single piece that I started that I wasn't able to correct using the tips and tricks that you shared with us."
"This has been the best metalsmithing class ever. We are all so fortunate how willing you are to share. I have taken a lot of online workshops and I will say this one has been the best!!! Your videos truly enhance the entire process."
"The class has been perfect-I have to say that the format has been my favorite "technique." You have given us the opportunity to view and review each video any number of times and spaced them out so we can feel comfortable with one technique before moving onto the next."
"Stephanie.... you are simply wonderful.. I can't even tell you how much I am loving this workshop! I love your statements on making what you learn your own as that fits with my spirit so well..."
"I love how Stephanie brought together a group of women from across the country who are all passionate about their art. The enthusiasm is just contagious."
I have a mind that is hungry for information and understanding how and why things do what they do. Combine that with my stubborn, I-want-to-figure-this-out way, and you have the makings of a metal-smithing class that uses the most accessible materials, the simplest tools, and easy-as-pie-but-super-cool techniques that will take your art to a whole new level! This is a wonderfully affordable way to gift yourself with many tools to get your creative juices flowing in a whole new direction! I invite you to join me in discovering new ways of working with the metal, so go ahead, dive in and get your hands dirty!
