Jewelry Making Classes

Year round by appointment
Work with our Artist in Residence Alyssa Saccente to develop your skills in metalsmithing, and maybe even develop a lifelong passion along the way! The courses are packaged into 1, 2, 3, or 4 2-hour sessions that can be booked as one-on-one with the artist, or as a partner session. The workshops increase in skill and difficulty as you gain hand and eye skills in design, material, technique, and craftsmanship. By the end of the sessions, the student will have a finished piece of wearable sterling silver jewelry to take home with them as a memento of their experience.
While creating all of the content above, we are also continuing to maintain our 4 historic properties and 14 historic buildings. The grounds of our properties are always open so feel free to enjoy them any time!
