About the Course

$25 per person for the "hands on" workshop of 10 people. When possible, free auditing of the workshop can be done from the back of the room so long as it does not interfere with the "hands on" learners. Pre-register after July 21 at

JC demonstrates the techniques and reasoning he has learned from revered mentors and developed on his own. Please bring the best quality 10x loupe that you have access to -- (If possible, it's better to borrow a decent loupe from a friend rather than rush out and buy a cheap one. Any power from 7x to 12x should work, 10x is a solid standard.) Class is "hands on" and the fee includes the necessary materials as well as a pen, all of which you will take home at the end.
