College of The Albemarle sponsored a one day metalsmithing and jewelry workshop at the COA jewelry studio located in COA’s Professional Arts Building in Manteo on Saturday, April 21. The workshop was offered free of charge to local high school students and faculty, with all materials and tools provided. Workshop participants spent the day at the COA jewelry studio learning to saw, texture, stamp, roll print, file, sand, and polish metal.
