Make Night: Gold Jewelry

Tickets to this event are sold out. Please contact hburstein@thewalters.org to inquire about the wait list.

The Walters’ special exhibition Gold of the Ancient Americas illustrates the techniques and uses of gold by native peoples in Panama, Peru, and Costa Rica. For this workshop, Baltimore Jewelry Center instructors will give a firsthand look at making tumbaga, a gold and copper alloy, finished examples of which are on view in the galleries.  Participants will learn the fundamental metalworking techniques of chasing and repoussé to create a copper badge brooch.

Make Night is a unique, dynamic museum program blending good wine and craft beer, great company, and fantastic art-making experiences led by local creative minds. Pre-registration required. Each Make Night includes one drink ticket.
