Jean and Janet came from North Carolina to take a couple classes. They stayed at a local Hampton Inn in Clinton which allowed them to make their own dough, press, dry and bake their Springerle over the course of two days. They were also able to learn about paper casting with Springerle molds and produce some of their own castings. They brought their own molds but were also able to use those I had. They enjoyed their classes and have told me that they get together during the holidays to make Springerle for family and friends.

At the class I had several antique Springerle molds that they were able to examine and see the beauty of an original mold.

Reservations are required for all programs.

At the classes replica Springerle molds will be for sale for your convenience.

Class size is limited to 6 but may be as few as just yourself. There are not any set dates for classes this year so please contact me if you wish to schedule a class. I would suggest attending with a friend or two so that they may pick up something that you may have missed.
