The Teacher-Sloth

The Sloth likes to take it slow and steady.  She can patiently teach you how to craft jewelry or small sculpture using traditional metalsmithing techniques. Whether you would like to learn how to solder or prefer to master cold connections like wire and rivets, she can guide you through the design, fabrication, and finishing processes to create one-of-a-kind pieces.

The Teacher-Squirrel

The Squirrel lives in two worlds simultaneously: the digital and the analog. She teaches you how to create beautiful 3D shapes one step at a time on a two-dimensional computer screen. Learn how to design, create, and prepare work for laser-cutters, CNC routers, and 3D printers. Whether you'd like to design for the body or free-standing sculpture, the Squirrel will teach you to consider pieces from all directions.
