Beginners Welcome!

Creative Side Jewelry Academy, the top jewelry crafting and metalsmithing school in central Texas, is now offering week-long Summer Camps (ages 10-15).

This class provides a safe and very creative environment where teens have the opportunity to learn fundamental metalsmithing techniques using copper, brass and silver. The class is led by professional artist and educator, Lindsay Sanchez. Under her guidance, students will increase fine motor skills while learning to make sculptural jewelry pieces. They will learn sawing, soldering, filing, hammering, drilling and finishing skills, and much more. Students will create multiple pieces throughout the week and be encouraged to develop their own design skills. 

Techniques

- Hammering, stamping and texturing
- Sawing
- Flexshaft skills
- Simple Chain making
- Fusing and Soldering
- Dapping and forming

Projects include a chain and dapped copper bracelet, Argentium Silver fused pendant, and soldered wire earrings. 

The Creative Side family is excited and honored to open up this world of jewelry making and these ancient techniques to your budding artisan. The gratification the students receive after creating their own design from start to finish is irreplaceable. Creative Side will host an end of the week art show to be named by the kids where parents and family will be invited to join us at the end of the day on Friday to meet the instructors, new friends and view their artwork on display.   

Summer camps are open to ages 10-15. Metalsmithing and jewelry crafting takes a certain set of skills, level of maturity and ability to focus plus take instruction that are appropriate for kids and teens. At this time we do not offer programs for children under 10 years old.
