You may want to consider bringing an apron made of cotton to protect yourself or your clothing. Because long hair and loose jewelry items can get caught in some machinery, you should bring a pony tail holder or hat to pull back your hair at certain times.

Earring 101 participants...

What creative ladies I had the pleasure of teaching in my Earring 101 class held in the loft space at Arts at Canal Place. It was a little comfy with all those fabulous women bumping into one another as we worked together so they could create some wonderful earrings! There was some talent in the class and it was a very eventful two days. We had a nice group of locals, but even some traveling as far away as northeastern Pennsylvania! They also stayed and toured the local area eatting some of our finest on the downtown mall area.
