MetalWerx @ the AIC: Riveted Bangle Bracelets

November 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Instructor: William Vanaria received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a
concentration in Jewelry & Metalsmithing in 2012. Afterwards, he spent time working within the jewelry industry
and volunteering as a teacher’s assistant for various art institutions. He found that the latter was much more
fulfilling, so he went on to further his education within the arts and to pursue a career in teaching. William
received his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2016; once again
with a concentration in Jewelry & Metalsmithing.
