There are so many techniques I want to earn, it is hard to choose just one. But since I have to pick one I would choose the introduction to PMC class. Thanks for the giveaway.

The Continuum Earring class - coiling seedbeads on wire sounds like the next step for me. Thanks for introducing me to this online resource!

Oh, I'm so glad I saw your post, Andrew! Kim St. Jean is local to me and I have been thinking about looking her up. Winning her DVD would be so very, very awesome.

Thanks for all you do!

Oh I would love to take this Metal folding class. This sounds so exciting. And the idea of having it on DVD is wonderful. I have limited internet and it's hard to have to watch them over and over again online. I'd like to be able to have the DVD to watch anytime.

I have always wanted to take one of their classes, and fold forming seems so very mysterious to me. That would be a great one to try!
Enjoy the day!

I have been looking at the classes for awhile- I saw your cuff bracelet and LOVE it! That would be a second choice but I would really like to take the mixed media resin class. I bought some resin a while ago but haven't been brave enough to try it yet. Oops-forgot my email. nmarkosky(at)comcast(dot)net

Elizabeth said...

I want, I want. I sooooooooo need some education that does not involve grading indecipherable papers. Good luck all.

Lucid Moon Studio said...

I really want to take this class! It's on my very long to-do list. If given a choice of classes, I would pick this one or Torch Enameling. Thanks for another great giveaway!!

I would love to take the Metal Fold Forming glass. Love your cuff Andrew!

maneki said...

The foldforming class and pearl hope necklace are two of the classes I'd really like to take.

Debra said...

This giveaway is the first that has ever lured me out from lurking status. I took several days with Kim St. Jean last spring, and it was wonderful. We weren't able to use a torch in the class situation, so I would love her Foldforming DVD. I have reread her book so often, I think it is falling apart. A close second I would like is the enamel torching class. Too bad I don't twitter or have a blog!

Out of all the classes, I'd probably most love to do the introduction to soldering class. There are a lot of great classes on the list, though!

That looks really cool and I love the bracelet you made. I'll have to check out the class - it's something I've been interested in but haven't had a chance to take an in-person class somewhere.
