Blair Anderson brings twenty years' experience in silversmithing to the Park. While earning her BA she studied under metal artist Vesta Ward in Southern California. An award-winning artist who has supplied over thirty galleries throughout North America, she has shown her work in one-woman shows as well as juried shoes like Circle Craft Vancouver. Prior to the SilverWorks Studio at the Park, she opened Blair Originals Gallery and founded a silversmith guild in western Canada, where she was the primary instructor.
Ms. Anderson loves to introduce silversmithing to others by sharing her knowledge and her studio. Her classes at Glen Echo Park are informal and fun and include basic silversmithing techniques, intermediate learning, and advanced jewelry making, as well we career development in this time-honored craft.
