Come to Port Townsend for our 2nd Annual Art Retreat!
April 27-29th, 2017 we will be offering the 2nd Annual Nunn Design Art Retreat for jewelry making here in Port Townsend, WA. This will be an intimate class of 12 people, with a few spots still available! To sign-up, email Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is an outline of what we will be doing during the two+ days of class:
Thursday April 27, 2017, we will open the class with a pre-class party on Thursday evening. The warehouse will be open for poking, digging and of course shopping! We will have food and beverages and tons of samples for you to look at and learn from.
Friday will be an all day class day. Based on the information that we gather from the students that will be attending (there is a survey with the registration form), I will cater the class to be geared to what you want to learn. Speaking of catering, we will have lunch brought in and lots of great snacks, tea and coffee!
Friday evening will end with a fun outing in downtown Port Townsend!
Saturday we will resume classes and Lunch will be provided.

The class starts on Thursday night here in the Nunn Design Office. Everyone is provided a class kit to create a bracelet like this sample above. If a Paris Theme isn’t your cup of tea, you can switch out the imagery. If you don’t want Paris Themed Charms, switch out your charms. You don’t like pink and black colors; switch the colors out to a palate that is more you.
Here are some bracelets that were created by other students that have taken the Nunn Design Art Retreat Class.
