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 through hammering, raising, chasing, soldering, acid-etching, bezel-stone-setting, and bead-stringing.
Metalsmithing students 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. At the end of their session, students have the opportunity to celebrate their work by participating in the Art Parade, Open Studios day, or a celebration with their class in-studio. All levels welcome. Classes are grouped according to age division and grade.
“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.”
“There are few limitations, lots of freedom, lots of variety of projects ... and blowtorches.”
“You can’t do this at home!”
