Brittany Golden started studying silversmithing at Utah Valley State College in 2002. She is the resident silversmith instructor at Sundance Resort and began teaching there in 2004, her class is always a favorite with guests visiting the resort.
Her work is shown galleries, including the Sundance Gallery, and on her website. In her own studio, Brittany Golden Studio, she teaches ongoing jewelry classes exploring many techniques and mediums. She also offers a wedding, anniversary, or commitment ring workshop where couples can make their bands with their own hands.
Recently her jewelry appeared in “30 Minute Rings” published by Lark books in April 2011 and she has been featured in blogs and other publications. In March of 2009 she had a 104 piece gallery exhibit at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo, Ut. and another 2 month exhibit in October-November 2010 there as well.
Brittany studied precious stone setting under Blaine Lewis and more non-traditional techniques with Robert Dancik. She is a member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths and the founder of the Utah Metal Arts Guild. Growing up in the mountains in Utah, Brittany was raised to observe and appreciate the beauty around her and has been studying and producing art all her life.
On any given day you’ll find Brittany with rocks in her pocket, just like when she was a little girl, and talking about the rhythms and energy of life which are reflected in her pieces and inspire her creations. When she is not making jewelry you’ll find her playing in the mountains with her boys. You can see her work in the Sundance Gallery, at www.brittanygolden.com or www.brittanygoldenstudio.com.
Celeste Lewis Dennis teaches beading. “Sundance has an amazing selection of beads from all over the world so possibilities are endless! Our classes show that each of us is our own artist inside. If we have six people in a class, we will have six completely unique pieces created. It never ceases to amaze me what we can do with beads.”
Also a painter and a collage artist, Celeste has a sense of texture and color in all her work that lends itself to beading. “Beading is an art form you can lose yourself in. It is relaxing and creative at the same time and you have this great piece of wearable art at the end!”
Learn one of the oldest forms of jewelry making by creating your own ring, bracelet or pendant in the silversmithing class at the Art Shack.
