Mastery of Silver and Stone – G200921

Join a master silversmith in an immersive class in advanced silversmithing and lapidary. This is a hands-on course in silver jewelry-making and lapidary for students with advanced silversmith skills. This class will provide advanced students the opportunity to work alongside other experienced jewelry-makers in furthering their skills and exploring new techniques. Studio work will be supplemented by demonstrations and discussions and guest instructors. Students will practice lapidary and channel inlay bracelet construction and will leave with multiple pieces of wearable art. I am very excited to have the opportunity to help expand students silversmithing and stone-inlay techniques. The fully-equipped Ghost Ranch silversmith studio provides a wonderful opportunity for students to hone their skills in silver jewelry-making and stone inlay in a beautiful location with a long history in the creative arts. The camaraderie of working with other experienced silver artists provides a unique opportunity for personal growth and enhanced creativity. Ghost Ranch is a place of beauty and serenity that nurtures the creative spirit in everyone it touches.
Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

 Workshops always begin with check-in at 3:00 p.m. and a ranch orientation in the evening on the first date listed for the course and end at 10:00 a.m. with checkout on the last date listed..

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?
  • Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
