Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio
The Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio is part of the Student Workshops, an innovative, co-curricular program through the Hopkins Center for the Arts that has been in existence for close to 60 years. The program has a well-equipped studio in Jewelry & Metalsmithing and is open to all currently enrolled Dartmouth students and faculty. Absolutely no previous experience is necessary. The studio has a staff of both professional and specially trained student instructors to help the participants make their objects. Because the program is voluntary and un-graded, creativity is nurtured in a very pure way. While the studios primarily operate in an “open-studio” format, there are also short “workshop-style” classes designed to accommodate students’ busy schedules and regular guest artist events. The Donald Claflin Studio also serves as a support structure for the academic needs of the college as well, with students, faculty and whole classes using the facilities and the knowledge of the Student Workshop’s staff for academic projects and research.
The Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio opens for Spring term Monday, March 26 at 1 pm.
Open to Dartmouth students with a valid Dartmouth ID.
