Demonstrations are followed by hands on practice. All skill levels are welcome!

Much of Loran's work can be seen around town - take a visit to the Pourhouse or the PT Gallery, downtown to check out her style.  The class is not at all traditional, which makes it so much fun. You'll find students sitting on the floor to bash out some tin and be mesmerized by the wide array of tools Loran makes available.
