Camp PMC Online Course 101
CLASS IS CURRENTY IN REVISION FOR FALL 2022 RELEASE.
I am thrilled to offer an online live-interactive CampPMC course! I truly believe that an in-person workshop is always best whenever possible, however, I also know that just isn’t always feasible. So…the second best is a live-interactive online course.
In this course, we will meet in an online video conferencing platform, where we will see each other face to face…like a virtual online classroom. While we are together, I will teach and demo through video and you will be able to ask questions and have them answered for you in real-time. Between classes, you will have full access to me via email and our private Facebook group that will be set up for each unique course. Through the Facebook Group, you can post questions, work in progress photos or your final photos.
I want this course to be the next best thing to sitting next to me working in my studio! I have put a lot of thought into it and tried to make it as easy as possible. Other than having your own basic metal clay tools, a torch, and a kiln everything else you need is included. The course price includes your workshops, instructions and demos, a physical copy of the manual, and ALL the materials you will need to complete each of the 5 projects. You will receive over $170 worth of supplies and materials!
I have tried to answer all the questions that you may have below. However, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
