I have just returned to my studio after a wonderful teaching
experience in Boston. I presented a three day goldsmithing workshop
last weekend at Metalwerx, in Waltham MA, and it was a fantastic
Metalwerx is a very well conceived and thoughtfully designed
environment. It successfully combines a cooperative community studio
and professional educational facility. I was impressed by the well
organized integration of these two separate aspects and how they
function as a single entity. Karen Christians has done an excellent
job, and her highly skilled staff and are to be commended.
The students in my class were energetic and enthusiastic, the
facilities were top rate, and the overall experience was a
resounding success. I look forward to my next workshop at Metalwerx
and I highly recommend this resource to all.
