Each two hour metalsmithing class investigates the craft of metalsmithing through jewelry making. Learn design basics, how to stamp and create texture with a hammer, and health and safety tips. Each student will leave class with their own handcrafted jewelry piece to give as a gift or keep for themselves.
Inspired by projects seen on the world wide web, each two-hour class will focus on projects that are easy to make and complete, but may require new-to-you techniques, or eccentric materials. Class attendees will be strongly encouraged to personalize their work and create something that is unique and important to them. Curious about the project? Take a look below for a sneak peek at each month's project.
In this camp, students will build self-esteem together through music exploration and instruction. Regardless of musical experience, campers will receive instrument instruction, form a band, write an original song, and perform at Family Friendly Friday on June 15th at the Top Hat Lounge. They will have the opportunity to learn song-writing, guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and keyboards while having musical freedom to create their own songs. The final show at The Top Hat will be an incredible display of their collective work.
