WWTH exists to identify, train, track and support young women of African descent who might not otherwise choose a career as a metalsmith. The project, incubating in 2019, introduces students to the basics of creating with metal, basic design and completion of projects. Classes will meet weekly for 8 weeks; the program is offered 4 times a year: winter, spring, summer and fall and culminates with an exhibition and sale.
WWTH will begin to offer an official "urban apprenticeship" program in 2021.
As well, the program will expand to build a program for girls and women in Dakar, Senegal to begin in 2020.
Our advisory board is full of women who share our vision
and whose contributions to the growth and development of
our project are immeasurable.
