Finding 10 Gables

Just a few minutes outside Lebanon, Ohio, you will find our little getaway at 1901 Greentree Road. We have a nice concrete driveway and our house is pretty unique. Coming from 123, we will be on your left after you come out of the curves on Greentree. Coming from 741, we will be on your right after the airport and Mulford Road.

When you arrive, drive to the barn, then follow the sidewalk to the double-doors on the side of the barn where you will find a doorbell. Please feel free to park on the pad in front of the barn, under the basketball hoop or the driveway turnaround.

Accessibility and workshop environment

⇒ We will be holding this class in our jewelry and woodworking barn loft studio. I clean often, but the space can be dusty (especially when Mark has been sawing wood - haha). I have dust masks available if this is an issue for you or you can bring your own.

The barn loft is located up 2 flights of stairs.

⇒ The barn is an ambient air space. In other words, no air conditioning in the summer or central heat in the winter. I schedule classes in months that are usually not too hot or cold, but we do live in Cincinnati so please be prepared in the event of a cold or hot snap. We do have fans to cool down in the summer (the loft is typically 85 or below, even on very hot days) and propane heaters to warm up in the winter (I aim for about 65 degrees on cold winter days).

⇒ We have bathroom facilities and running water in our home on the property if needed. 

⇒ Masks are optional as are vaccines. I will not be wearing a mask. 

Food and drink

I will have bottled water available for you during class. Due to insurance requirements, we cannot allow alcoholic beverages on site. Lebanon is a great town to visit. I highly recommend planning some time after your class to dine and drink with friends. My favorite place for a delicious meal and local spirits is the Black Horse Tavern (part of the Golden Lamb with a great porch). Another good option is Doc's Place (they have outside dining as well on Mulberry street). 

What to wear and bring

⇒ Jewelry making is a full contact sport! We will be working with equipment and supplies that can be dangerous if not handled properly. As we work through the class, I will talk about and demonstrate safe shop practices.

⇒ For most classes, the best attire to wear is: long pants, close-toed shoes, nothing long and flowy. If you have long hair, you should wear it up or plan to bring a ponytail holder/clip to tie it back as needed. I recommend wearing natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, and wool in lieu of man-made materials which can accelerate burns.

⇒ I will provide dust masks, safety glasses, aprons, etc. as needed depending on the work we are doing.

⇒ If you wear glasses for reading, please plan to bring them with you to class. Some of the work we will be doing is very close up and magnification can help.

⇒ Your workshop includes instruction during the class plus handouts to take home. I love enameling and jewelry making. It is my hope that you will enjoy this class and leave with something beautiful plus some skills and information should you decide you want to take a deeper dive
