I would like to offer these every Second Saturday from 12 Noon to 5 pm!
But due to other, overlapping events whose timing is out of my control,
there are dates when I will have to move the hours or switch the date.
(Exceptions are noted in bold font.)

Convergent Series Studio
Wilkins School Community Center

Swissvale, PA 15218

We'll meet upstairs, over the front door, in Room #25.

  What Is a Studio Session?!!

A little bit of shopping ... but not a full-scale show.

A chance for students to get some more practice ... but not an actual class.

Dec 15 12 - 5 Holiday Shopping!!!
Art! Jewelry! Gift Certificates too...
All tables used for displays: check with me for weekday work-space times!
future months: to be announced

To Shop:
Just stop by during the stated time!

My studio shows do NOT have an admission fee:
Come and browse!

Shop payments may be made by cash, check, or credit card.

This is not a full-scale in-studio show of all my work: Only a portion of my inventory will be available during these sessions. But...

Each month will have a "theme" and I'll bring in all I have of those, as featured items, along with a number of other pieces that somehow go with the theme.

If you're looking for something in particular, let me know at least 36 hours in advance and I can be sure to bring that in for your consideration, regardless of whether or not it fits the theme! (18-36 hours notice may work too, but is less certain...)

To contact me, use the email address at the bottom of this page!

To Use Workspace:
Please contact me in advance!

Strictly speaking, registration may not be required. But it is strongly recommended so I will have:

  • the materials you'd like to use;
  • cleaned up the tools you want;
  • even cleaned up enough table space (and not promised it to anyone else),
unless I know to expect you!

These sessions are NOT classes!

They are intended for those with some prior experience: advanced beginners on up!

They are a chance for you to further practice your skills while I try to get some of my own work done.

There is a small fee per session. (Contact me for details.)

Have some work you'd like me to fire? Drop it off during one of these sessions! (Silver: $10/person/shelf. Other metals: negotiable.)

Bonus: One shelf of silver may be fired, at no additional cost, for each 3 hours of session time! For a box of mid-fire bronnze: 4.5 hours; high fire bronze, copper, or steel: 6 hours.

Another Option:

Pick YOUR Date!

Second Saturday afternoons not good for you?

If I'll be there anyway (and can limit my own projects enough that there will be room for you to work too) it'll be great to have some company!

Because the schedule at my studio can be fairly flexible, let me know if you'd like to come on another day!

Weekdays will be your best bet, afternoon or sometimes in the early evening.
Weekend dates are also available, just not as often.

Or, yet another option:
come to one of my scheduled classes.

Details here!

Information Sources...

I willl admit that I find it a challenge to keep up with all the various online sites where I could / should post class information these days. But if you want to see if there are any other workshops or classes that pique your interest, feel free to see if any of these got updated before this site:

The best way to make initial contact with me is via email:
