Master jewelry crafters guide novices through a wide variety of art project classes using techniques such as raw metal shaping and beadwork. They teach students how to fashion their own understated jewelry pieces such as earrings, pendants, necklaces, and love knot rings. While paying attention to instructors, burgeoning artists can sample pastries from local farmer’s markets or the nearby Dewey’s Coffee Café and sip complimentary refreshments, and occasionally glasses of wine if they are 21 or older. All materials are included, and no experience is required.<p>
Lake Erie Artists Gallery
Paula Atwell wasn't born an artist. She didn't pursue any art form in college, instead achieving a degree in English and a minor in accounting. After logging years in standard 9–5 jobs, she had an epiphany—it was time to do something for herself. Taking this newfound motivation to action, Paula enrolled in a beading class and followed it with forays into metalsmithing, crafting, and soldering.
These experiments in creativity led her to join the Lake Erie Artists co-op in 2003, where she began to show her eclectic jewelry at their booth during local festivals. When the co-op became incorporated in 2005, Paula's business world experience made her an obvious choice to lead the diverse group of artists in forming their own gallery. Today, the co-op-turned-gallery now carries hundreds of art pieces that span a range of media.
Producing blown-glass sculptures and handcrafted metal jewelry and pottery, the artists each specialize in a few select media as decided during the gallery's annual game of spin-the-paintbrush. The staff at Lake Erie Artists Gallery is also a strong proponent of local business, encouraging their patrons to browse Shake Square after looking at their wares. In project-oriented classes taught by working artists, students explore jewelry and painting and leave with their handcrafted pieces.
