Instructor: Ellen Ball grew up in a creative household, never going anywhere without pencils, pastels and a sketchpad. Over time, her creative journey led to explorations in other mediums – from paper and fabric to clay and steel. After taking a basic jewelry fabrication class from silversmith Patricia Rhodes in 2007, she dove into metals, drawing inspiration and techniques from favorite artists, books, magazines, online sources, and other craftspeople. The Hickory, NC native is a member of North Carolina Artist-Blacksmith Association of North Carolina, Handmade in America, and American Craft Council.
