Covid-19 Update for Metal Arts Academy

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone in the New Year!

All of our students and Apprentices have been amazing throughout this journey. We are so grateful to everyone for their support, their kindness and their commitment to wearing masks while in the shop. Everyone is still healthy and we want to keep it that way!

Classes will continue as scheduled. Masks are required and we are limiting class size to 4 people maximum. This includes the Goldsmiths Apprentice Program and Open Studio. Each day during the lunch break the shop will be thoroughly cleaned, again!, and so we ask that you eat either outside, weather permitting, or in the several open seating areas in our building. We can do this as long as we keep working together!

Goldsmiths Apprentice Program

Spring 2021           March 9th- May 28th

During this comprehensive program, equip yourself with the skills needed to enhance your techniques or if you are a beginner, start your journey in the jewelry trade.

This program is designed to train the student as an apprentice, as it was throughout history when apprentices were taught the age-old practice of repetition to develop and master a skill while working under a master craftsperson.
