Metalsmithing at Artascope!

Our Summer Artist Series Session just started! One class we love to pop in with is the Wednesday evening Metalsmithing class.

Many of the students in this class have been working with the teacher, Clint Fulkerson, and each other, for well over a year. It has been great addition to our Artist Series line up! New students also have enjoyed joining the class and getting lots of different perspectives of what they can do in the medium!

From learning the basics of metalsmithing with ring making, stone setting and other techniques, students are able to grow and expand their skills. Students in the class, like Kelley and Gretchen love making jewelry, whether it be pendants or rings. Sheri’s ring is beautiful and is one of her earlier projects! Jim often makes jewerly items as well, but also explore more scuptural elements of metalsmithing.

Whether you are curious, need a refreshed or a teacher’s guidance to pull together your inspirations, Metalsmithing at Artascope is HOT!

Our Summer Session runs until the end of August. Starting up September 16th, Clint will again be teaching Metalsmithing on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9pm! Clint will also be teaching in our ArtEscape! workshop format, these are three day weekend intensives.
