Join us for this one-of-a-kind Lone Star Jewelry Retreat featuring Texas Artists, Vickie Hallmark, and Gail Stouffer

Kick your boots off and immerse yourself in a blend of past and present as we travel to the Heart of Austin for a unique 4-day workshop experience. Hosted by your friends at Kiln Frog, you'll spend 5 nights at the ultra-cool and retro-inspired, Lone Star Court Hotel, soaking up the hip Austin vibes of great music, great food, and modern luxury in Austin's newest hipster paradise, The Domain!  

Our time together will kick off with cocktails and a welcome dinner as we settle in for a great week of laughs, learning, and fun. On the first day, our group will split into 2 sections, each beginning their workshop with one of the artists. Each artist will conduct a 2-day workshop with open studio time in the evening. Then, the morning of day three, everyone will switch and you'll begin your new 2-day workshop and open studio with the alternate artist.

This retreat experience is packed with double the techniques and projects, plus you'll gain the experience of two artists to guide you through multiple perspectives on metal clays and metalsmithing. In Vickie’s workshop, you will concentrate on Prong Setting Special Stones and techniques in Argentium & PMC... while, in Gail's workshop, you will concentrate on Realistic Gardens and Faceted Stones while learning techniques in Sterling & PMC!

Plus, as an added bonus, you'll spend Q&A time with Stacey Campbell, our resident social media, and marketing guru, who will walk you through the ins and outs of marketing yourself and your work online, on Instagram, and Facebook. Stacey is a valuable resource here to consult with us about what we need to know.

Your retreat includes all lodging, workshop fees, tools, equipment and materials, breakfast, and lunches, plus 2 group dinners, S'mores, drinks around the campfire, and much, much more.
