Michael will lead students through a series of exercises that are designed to teach the principles of how metal is moved from flat sheet into non-definitive forms. Students will have a short time to practice each stage in order to digest the concepts presented before moving on to the next exercise. The goal is for students to gain enough of a foundation in the session to be able to return to their own surroundings to practice at their leisure. The course is designed for all skill levels including those with no previous metalsmithing experience. Michael's philosophies and enthusiastic style make for an unforgettable experience! Complete took kits will be provided and are optionally available to purchase after each session. 

Students will need a notebook, pen, pencil, and ruler. 

Each student will use approximately 1 sheet of 26 gauge 12X6 Bronze or Nu Gold. Students may want to purchase additional sheets for individual projects. A 26 gauge sheet of Nu Gold will be available for purchase from Wesleyan Potters or students may bring their own metal. 

Additional Notes


Proof of full Covid-19 vaccination and at least one booster as eligible will be REQUIRED for class registration for all sessions going forward. 


The Wesleyan Potters policy has changed. Mask wearing will be optional.

We have to be flexible and will advise if mask requirements go from optional to required during a class session. If Middlesex County COVID positivity rates increase into the Red Category, the loosened rules on masking may be modified for the health and safety of our community. 

Note that everyone has the option to continue to wear his or her mask during the semester. If you feel the need to continue to wear a mask for your own protections, or to protect someone close to you, you should do so. 

An email providing more information regarding our cleaning procedures will be provided before the start of class.

VACCINATION QUESTION: Are you able to provide proof of full COVID19 vaccination with booster? 

Please bring proof of vaccination to the office soon after registration and before your class begins. It can also be sent electronically to Wespots2021@att.net. In the subject heading, write your First name, Last name and your class.
