“If you are even CONSIDERING this class, you should just go for it. Best art class I have EVER taken. Cabrina is an incredible teacher and I don’t think I could have imagined how far developed my skill set would be after only 2 weekends. The class is very affordable for what you get, and it is money well spent if you are at all interested in this spectacular art form. Plus, you walk away with hand-made works of art that you will have for a lifetime. That, in and of itself, is worth the class fee!”Â -Allie Galixsee
“Artsy fartsy friends,I just finished up a fantastic class at AsiF with Cabrina Channing. 40 hours packed full of information. If you’ve ever considered taking a silver jewelry fabrication class, I highly recommend her! Class fees include tools to get you on your way at home and silver. Here’s what I made, and my designs are simple compared to what some of the students were creating!”Â -Sarah Volcelka Hendrickson-
