Kathleen Dustin is Coming to Metalwerx!!

This past weekend I was supposed to be taking a one day class at my favorite jewelry school, Metalwerx in Waltham. It was a class on photographing your jewelry and I was really looking forward to it for months. Then my mom got sick and her surgery was scheduled for the day before the class. There was no way I was going to be able to go. Even though my mom insisted I go, I cancelled.  They were very understanding about it and gave me a credit for another class as they will be offering it again.

When I went to the Metalwerx web site to see when the class would be offered again, I nearly fell over. There at the very bottom of the page,  a class called Translucent Techniques and Design Decision Principles with Kathleen Dustin. I had to look twice. Kathleen Dustin? Here? At Metalwerx? This summer? I couldn't believe it. Of course I signed up right away! Metalwerx doesn't usually have classes in polymer. They are all about the metals. But I have been asking, so someone must have heard!

It will be my first polymer clay class. Until now I have been using tutorials and experimenting on my own. Not only will it be my first polymer clay class, but one with a shining star of the clay world! I am more than a little excited as you can see! I have heard that she is a fantastic teacher as well! Now I have to wait for summer.

I'm so jealous. What a wonderful first workshop. There will be no stopping you after that! Look out polymer world.

Roberta, this is such exciting news!!!

Also, I feel all sentimental when I see names like Waltham. I went to school in Amherst and spent my childhood in Leominster/Worcester and even lived in Boston for a year -- I'm a Mass girl at heart. :)

You are so lucky to be able to take a class from Kathleen. She is a marvelous teacher and you will learn so much. And if you are really lucky, she might bring some of her pieces to drool over.
