The second week of Ford Hallam's visit to Anneville got off to a great start. We had a Meet & Greet at Stone Brewery on the Sunday evening, and learned we had an eager and impressive crew - more jewelry/metals teachers, classically trained jewelers, folks with tons of experience in chasing & repoussé, even a bladesmith and Forged in Fire champion! From then until the last hour on Friday, the participants were a joy to be around - ambitious, focused, hard-working, talented, and funny too. We've already got plans for a few of them to return as visiting artists themselves. Here are photos and a recap of what they learned and created.
Educator, metalsmith, jeweler, maker of custom mokume gane jewelry and wedding rings.
