  • This Major can be taken in two-week increments. Our 4- and 8-week sessions are divided into two-week blocks, giving students the option to change their Major every two weeks.

Learn to design and create art from metal with basic metalsmithing skills and techniques under the guidance of an experienced arts educator and metalsmith. Create your own unique sculptures, jewelry, mobiles, and more using hammering, raising, chasing, soldering, acid etching, bezel stone setting, and bead stringing. 

Metalsmithing Majors spend their days engaging in a combination of direct instruction, studio work time, collaboration with other young artists, and sharing and reflecting on their work. All levels welcome. 

“Metalsmithing is a class where you can experiment, and it's really fun. I liked the whole atmosphere of the class and that you have a lot of freedom to try new things.”
—Madison

“There are few limitations, lots of freedom, lots of variety of projects ... and blowtorches.” 
—Margot

“You can’t do this at home!” 
—Samuel
