“Creativity is an inherent part of everyone’s soul. The best teachers are facilitators who introduce you to new and exciting methods and materials and then step aside to let you create! Being a working artist has allowed me to learn and develop the methods that get you from point A to point Z faster. Using tools and materials that perform well are the key.”
Linda teaches a wide range of classes which are listed on the Schedule>Classes page on her website where online registration is also available. She is the author of Metal Clay Basics & Bench Reference and has had an article on ring making published in Art Jewelry Magazine.
Linda has used the ring liners and ring bands in classes and her own work.
