Bennet street school


#1

Could you tell me some more specifics about the North Bennet
Street School. I’m aware of the fact that they are located in the
North End, and that their jewelry program goes for 18 months. Do
you know anything about the instructors, or facilities? I am
considering various options for increasing my competence as a
bench jeweler, and I used to live in Boston, so it’s not such a
threatening consideration. Any you can pass along
would be helpful.

thanks,

Kim

I have hired two jewelers out of the North Bennet St School and
both of them have received a great training there. Much better
than any art school in the area (and we have quite a few here in
Boston). They actually teach how to make jewelry (as opposed to
making art that you then try to make into jewelry).
