Learn how to make an heirloom spoon ring from family silverware or a flea market find. Spoons (or forks!) can be made of sterling silver or silver plated nonferrous metal. Bring in your silverware and we will use the traditional metal-smithing techniques of cutting, filing, sanding, hammering, bending, and polishing to turn your old flatware handle into a new wearable ring.

Steel and stainless steel cannot be used. A selection of spoons will be on hand for purchase in case a student doesn’t have a spoon made of workable metal.

Students may be able to complete more than one ring if time permits. Beginners with no jewelry making experience are encouraged to bring extra silverware in case they run into problems on their first attempt.

Veterans Expressive Arts Class ( 6 Weeks)

Drawing and Doodles.

Veterans Expressive Arts Class (6 weeks)
Mondays 6-8 pm | Nov 12 – Dec 17
Facilitated by Cheryl Pete, ATR

This class is an exploration of art for self-expression. Unlike a typical art class, this class is facilitated by an art therapist and offers participants the opportunity to use art for storytelling, emotional expression, stress relief and increasing self-confidence. [Since this class is focused more on the process of making art and not the finished product, those with little or no artistic experience are encouraged to attend. Experienced artists will also find new ways to approach art making.] Funded by local donors, this class is free to anyone that has served or is currently serving in the military including all branches of service and regardless of type of discharge. Registration is required.
