I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
Alchimia, a school of contemporary jewellery and design in Florence, Italy, was founded in 1998 by Lucia Massei and Doris Maninger. Based in Oltrarno, Florence's historic artisan district, the school's philosophy is to provide students an innovative lab of creative thought, rooted in a deep understanding of traditional goldsmith techniques.

In courses offered from beginning to advanced levels, students develop strong technical skills guided by a capacity to elaborate artistic concepts and their own creative language. This teaching method, fine tuned over the past twelve years and focused on the students and their individual nature, has produced results of a very high quality, with peaks of excellence made evident by many international prized acknowledgements.

I loved the two weeks I got to spend at this school. I am a self taught metalsmith, and had to struggle for years alone with no money for tools or supplies,  or a teacher. Alchimia taught me more in the two weeks I was there, then I taught myself in the 20 years prior. I miss the school, and the coffee from Sandy's down the street.

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us!

 

Please start to look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that so that the rest of us can chime in. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

 

Please note that crafthaus is a fully edited and member-financed website, meaning that a small fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. Your membership fee is due on January 15, 2011, you will find information about payment options in the FAQs section.

 

ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)

 

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

 

Again: Welcome !

 

Brigitte Martin

Crafthaus Editor


 

 
 
 

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.
