Jewelry Silversmithing 

Jewelry Bootcamp
Join us for a full week of jewelry-making boot camp! Spend a full five days learning to fabricate jewelry with renowned instructor Barrie Edwards. You will start by making a basic ring and during the week will progress through different projects expanding and perfecting their skills along the way. There will be a variety of projects to choose from to ensure each student creates something they enjoy while still working at their own pace. With the number of dedicated hours involved, you will be encouraged to work on multiple projects at a time and most can expect to complete at least three or four pieces with the potential for many more! Materials fees will vary with chosen projects, though you can expect minimum costs to run approximately $150. Most projects will consist of sterling silver though many projects can be done in copper to keep costs down. Tools will be supplied with the option of purchasing the basic tool kit at the end of the week at a special price.
