Spring Speaker in Residence to be announced for Spring 2021
If all goes well, the dates for the EFMLS Wildacres Spring Session are May 17-23. The unknown, of course, is the situation regarding the Coronavirus. Because of this, we are asking everyone not to send in checks at this time.
Tentative classes include wire wrapping, chain mail, cabochon making, micromount preparation, faceting, beading, and PMC. These may be subject to change as conditions change. The cost for the entire week will be $435 which includes room and board, classes, lectures, and other activities.
We hope to know by March if Wildacres will be able to open and if the conditions in the eastern states permit traveling. Stay tuned.
Steve Weinberger, Wildacres Director
