My Guest this Thursday, January 24th at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk is San Diego-based artist and metalsmith Tara Magboo. Tara has been holding a few workshops at Whaley Studios following the closure of the UCSD Crafts Center - we thought we would like to introduce her to you! Join us for a great conversation on launching a new jewelry line and discovering what comes next.
About Tara Magboo: Since she was a child, Tara Magboo has always had strong artistic inclinations. Wanting to be immersed in an artistic environment, Tara was naturally led to study Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design for her bachelor’s degree. It was at RISD where she also discovered her passion for working with metal.
After her college experience, she worked in the jewelry industry for four years both as a freelance designer and as a head jeweler  for a fashion jewelry company. In addition, Tara became a Jewelry instructor at the UCSDCrafts Center, which has not only been a personally enriching experience, but has also enabled her to be a part of a wonderful craft community.
Driven by a desire to pursue her own metalwork on a more intense level, Tara completed her graduate studies in the Jewelry and Metalsmithing program at San Diego State University. The interdisciplinary approach of this MFA program has encouraged her to incorporate a variety of materials and techniques, including illustration, woodworking and plastic fabrication.
Tara’s creative endeavors have brought her to launch a new jewelry company:Magboo. The company symbolizes excellent craftsmanship and contemporary design.
