Teaching/Workshops​

Erica teaches mostly easily accessible metalworking techniques to all different levels.  These workshops are general jewelry type techniques on a slightly larger scale.  Skills taught can include silver brazing, welding, cutting, forming, drilling, threading, small forgings, & finishing. From a spoon to a sky scraper's topping lantern, she has over 30 years experience as a professional metal fabricator working with clients on a wide array of challenging engineering and fabrication projects, and can help you learn the basics to take home to your garage, or collaborate/teach on more complicated goals in her studio. She teaches private lessons with or without lodging, and teaches at other venues, all listed below.

Private Instruction 

Play with fire in beautiful Midcoast Maine.

Come play in Erica's metal studio - your own solo time or with colleagues, family, and/or friends with guided assistance.

You can also rent a room in her beautiful Maine 1854 Sea Captain's home at a discounted rate when combined with instruction.

Bring the whole family, friends, eat lobster, weld metal.  Day, weekend, or week-long options.
