Cindy is likely one of the best teachers I've ever experienced. She not only knew her own field exceptionally well but had empathy for the student’s abilities, pace, style of learning, etc. She seemed to be constantly able to register the situation for each individual student - sometimes while she was actively teaching to the group. She is an OUTSTANDING instructor.
Metalwerx works! Regional, national, and international instructors, students, and studiomates alike benefit from one of the most fully equipped and dynamic schools and studios in the country. Our operation, up to this point, has been funded primarily on tuition. Metalwerx works so well that we have now reached the point of capacity with current funding. In order to add enrichments, provide enhancements, additional curricula, and structural growth, additional layers of funding are necessary. These include “small-batch” fundraisers planned throughout the years concurrent with day-to-day operations and longer term fundraising for the establishment of an endowment and for structural growth.
There are several ways to donate directly to Metalwerx. Your contribution is tax deductible and supports the continuation of regular scholarships, a dynamic curriculum with world-class instructors and visiting artists, and allows us to provide top-notch equipment to students for the development of their skill-set, and keep current of cutting edge technologies.
Support community education, collaboration, and the advancement of jewelry and metal arts.
