Russell McKane is a Silversmith who has been imparting his skills in Secondary education and at FATA for many years. He majored in Silver and small metal artworks in the late 70's, and is more a metal art and experimental metal worker than a fine jewellery maker. Russell is a true renaissance man and loves supporting and mentoring artists. He has been part of the Poatina Community and Arts Colony since first visiting for Faith and the Arts and an Artist Residency some years ago.
Advanced Silver is an ALL DAY Elective
This elective will give you a chance to alight to higher and deeper levels in using your acquired silversmithing skills. Learn more advanced techniques and have a chance to be more creative in your choice of designs. Through all-day workshops (this elective uses both morning and afternoon elective spots) you will have the chance to immerse yourself in your work. We will spend some time at the beginning of the elective looking at design and design choices, then embark on your chosen project with full use of our facilities and Russell's expertise.
Please be advised we will not be able to set stones.
NOTE: This advanced Elective is available to participants aged 15 and over who have previously done silversmithing at FATA, TAFE or Art College.
Max & min numbers apply, make sure you indicate a second choice of morning and afternoon elective when registering in case your first choice is unavailable.
