Kids and Teens Camp

Join us this summer for Jewelry + Metals Camp!

Our kids and teens camp sessions each take place in June of 2018. Programs are available for teens ages 13+ and kids ages 7 – 12. All students will work with traditional and contemporary jewelry making techniques  to create finished pieces of wearable art and jewelry.

The mission of the Baltimore Jewelry Center is to engage the greater Baltimore community with the practice of metalsmithing and art jewelry. With our summer camp programs we create an environment for kids and teens to explore a new form of making. Students will learn about new materials and gain a variety of skills as they work with our instructors to create their own handmade object.
