Hands, Tools And Tricks

November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020

David Jones

In this workshop students will focus on traditional and inventive metalsmithing techniques while producing jewelry and small scale objects or sculpture. You will discover the endless possibilities with fabrication being at the heart. Techniques include forming, forging, soldering, sawing, cold connecting, chain making, rings and stamping, and utilization of wire and sheet metal. There will be a strong emphasis on using recycled metals and materials, as well as advice on where to source these materials. Class demonstrations will assist in building your knowledge and personal narrative. Students should arrive with open eyes and willing hands. Open to all skill levels, however basic metalsmithing skills are a plus.


David Jones received his BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Since 1988, he has been studying and teaching at Penland and taught at its Spring of 2017 Concentration. In 2012, he was a professor of Jewelry and Metals in Cortona, Italy through the University of Georgia studies abroad program.
