[Workshop] Silversmithing Special Week-long Retreat

Jewelry & Silversmithing Special Week-long Retreat
Metals Institute with the Masters
April 27 - May 1, 10 am - 4 pm
DeCordova Museum School, Lincoln, MA

Enjoy a spectacular week long retreat with renowned jewelry and
silversmithing masters at DeCordova’s 35-acre contemporary outdoor
sculpture park in a spectacular setting of New England woodslands and
adjacent to Thoreau’s historic Walden Pond.

Meet new friends in DeCordova’s metals studio as you learn
techniques from a master who will lead you through specific metal
processes. Each day-long workshop will highlight the expertise of one
of our accomplished faculty members, and focus on a technique, such
as Keum-boo, stone setting, woven metals and forging.

Wednesday, listen to lectures given by the instructors who will
share images of their work, and talk about philosophy and
inspirations. If you’ve previously attended a workshop, you are
welcome to come and finish something you’ve started, or learn
something entirely new. At week’s end, enjoy a wine and cheese
reception for all participants. Our institute is open to beginners,
intermediate and advanced students, unless otherwise noted.

Sign up for individual workshops or participate in the entire week.
