Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts celebrates at Bill Reid Gallery

Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts Program: Class of 2012

Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts Program: Class of 2012, taken in their workshop on the last day of class at the Native Education College. Yeah!

It’s rainy Wednesday evening but we are warm, surrounded by art and Gathered to celebrate the graduation of the NEC’s 2012 Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts Program. As their instructor Robert Tait exclaims his mantra ‘Work hard!’ to a room of students with family and friends, not a soul in there could deny that work hard they did. Nine people began this course with little or no knowledge of working with silver, and months later, they are emerging traditional artists, carrying on the culture and skills of their ancestors.

The quality of work is very high, if you are in Vancouver, a visit to the Bill Reid Gallery is highly recommended. You can see photos of last night’s ceremony on flickr or facebook or check out our website for more information on the program.
