July 8th to July 12th
9am – 3:30pm (Full Day Camp)
All instruction will take place at The Artsmiths in Mt. Lebanon.
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Explore jewelry design and metalsmithing while creating wearable masterpieces for you, your friends and your family. Create objects like pendants, bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, and keychains. Learn the processes of enameling, etching, wire wrapping, letter stamping, hammering, embossing, and chain making.
INSTRUCTOR: Lindsay Huff is an artist and metalsmith who creates wearable art and works primarily in enamel. Her artistic process stems from a fascination with her materials and environment. Lindsay graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing from Syracuse University, where she began her first experiments with enameling. As an artist, Lindsay loves the act of transformation and the dialogue between certainty and uncertainty: how glass enamels react with each other, the anticipation of waiting for a piece to reveal itself after a firing, and the hammered metamorphosis of sheet metal to finished vessel.
