METAL SMITHING AND METAL CLAY CLASSES

Classes in my studio are generally limited to three people. You can register or schedule classes by contacting me at studio @ donamiller.com or 406.210.0526. Watch here for upcoming classes or contact me with your interests.  

If you have a special class request or want to schedule a private or small group class contact me. A class list of many of the standard classes I teach can be found here to give you ideas. 

For more advanced classes, these are often taught one on one in my studio. So if there is a specific technique you want learn, or specific project you want help on, let me know and we can get that scheduled too. 

I am currently only scheduling classes by request in my studio.
