Watch out.....they love to give kisses!!!!
Yes, it really hurt to lose my Yorkie. She was 13 years old and I had to give her insulin shots twice a day for diabetes.
I have never been, so, are there classes before the conference and then speakers at the conference? Is that how it works? Does everyone stay at the same hotel?

Hi Janet,

 

Yes, there are pre-conference classes that you can sign up for.  If you don't sign up for any of those classes, then you would just attend the conference and listen to all the speakers at the conference.  Here is the website with all of the information you need:

Also, there is a $35 discount if you are an Art Clay Society member.  Registration is "early bird" until June 1 - then the fee goes up so it is good to register early! :-)

 

As Ann said, it is held at a resort so everyone stays in the same hotel. 

 

Christine

I have been twice and yes they do have pre-classes and most people stay at the Hilton :)

Yes, that's it exactly,

actually it's a resort, you never have to leave. google Metal Clay World Conference 2011

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
