There is a lot happening this fall within the Ethical Metalsmiths community and we thought we'd take a moment to let you know of a few.
TOMORROW! (Thursday Oct. 25) Ethical Metalsmiths Director, Christina Miller, will be the day's guest on the Jay Whaley radio program, MetalSmith BenchTalk. The program will air live at 3 PM PDT / 6 PM EDT. You can participate in this interview by calling in with your questions and comments. Please join us! The program will be archived, but it would be great to have your live participation.
Mark your calendars! Ethical Metalsmiths is honored to be the beneficiary of a special event being organized by Taber Studios in Oakland, CA. Taber Studios is celebrating its 40th Anniversary on Tuesday November 13th from 5-9 PM. If you are in the Bay Area, this will be an extraordinary event with scheduled presentations pertaining to the ethical jewelry movement by Greg Valerio of Fair Jewelry Action, Christine Dhein of Revere Academy, and Taber Studio's own Martin Taber. Martin is also an active member of Ethical Metalsmiths Futuring Committee. There will also be food and wine and JEWELRY! You are invited to donate a piece. Please contact Martin Taber if this piques your interest!
Radical Jewelry Makeover, Boone, NC a SUCCESS! Yesterday, students at Appalachian State University set up and ran a "Pop Up Shop" showcasing the jewelry they made during Radical Jewelry Makeover. This was a really unique edition of the project combing the student interests of an Art and Social Activism class and the Jewelry Program at Appalachian State University. Thank you to everyone involved in this project. We'll have a more extensive story about this event on our website soon. Thanks again!
