I want to learn the art of silverwork with someone with good experience that would like an apprentice after office hours and week-ends. I have a strong chemistry/biology background and extensive laboratory experience. Could someone please suggest me names or studios in the Boston area? Thanks so much.
I don't know of any silversmith, especially in the Boston area, who is looking to take on an apprentice. Have you been through the Workshop and Schools pages on the SAS site? You'll find that you'll receive more focused training in taking raising, forming, soldering, etc. workshops than apprenticing. Check the local design schools; they may offer weekend workshops.
