INSTRUCTOR
Lindsey is an artist and metalsmith born and raised in Chicagoland. She spent her time receiving her MFA exploring metalsmithing techniques and examining the many meanings of adornment. Lindsey has a bounty of knowledge and is always looking for new perspectives and a chance to connect with other makers. She can be found inside her Portland studio working on one-of-a-kind artwork, custom jewelry for clients, and a line of everyday jewelry.

PREREQUISITES
No experience required! This is a great follow-up class, however, to Intro to Jewelry + Metalsmithing, and will build on skills introduced in that class.
