I teach jewelry making classes and workshops at the Mansfield Art Center.
Workshops focus on a single project that you can take home with you that day. The 6 week classes, on the other hand, provide a chance to build fundamental metalsmithing skills like sawing, filing, sanding, drilling, riveting, soldering, and surface texturing. Specific projects are suggested but not assigned. I take beginners along each skill starting with sawing and ending with polishing. Advanced students work on their own independent projects and I offer assistance as needed.
The MAC gives me the opportunity to guide students on their creative journey and learn new skills. I find it rewarding to help people try new techniques and make art they can wear. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about my classes!
