A little about me: I have been teaching silversmithing for ten years. My students describe me as "having an impatient style". I prefer to have fun and get lost in the making of a piece. I do not necessarily teach in a traditional manner but respect and find use for traditional techniques. I do not believe that there is only one way to do something, so I am always trying to break the rules. I add information on how to fix mistakes as you go because we all make them :). I consider mistakes design opportunities.
