Goldsmiths Apprentice Program

Orientation: September 30, 2020

Training:  October 1-December 9, 2020

To apply, contact info@metalartsacademy.com 

During this comprehensive program, equip yourself with the skills needed to begin your journey into 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.

Working through the skills needed to fabricate and manufacture by hand, the student learns from the beginning.
