Welcome to the Jewelry & Fine Metals Studio, a place to share the joy of making art using metals and stone. The studio offers a wide range of classes for all ages and skill levels, as well as open studio time to work on individual projects.
The studio is equipped with a dozen individual benches, each equipped with a flex shaft and tools and a dust extraction system. The studio offers lost wax casting, metalsmithing stakes and hammers, a step shear, sandblasters, tumblers, chasing equipment, and a plentiful supply of hand tools. Rental lockers are available. The studio is building a library of inspirational and technical references for jewelry and metalsmithing.
If you’re interested in using open studio time, please attend one of our orientation and skills assessment sessions, listed on the calendar. We will show you around and ask you to demonstrate your experience with certain tools, which will then qualify you to use those tools during open studio time. If you do not know how to use the tools, you may need to take a class to become qualified.
Open studio is free for members, and only $10 for non-members.
If you’re a non-member (or a member who has forgotten your key fob) and find the front door locked when you show up for a class or open studio session, please call the studio and we’ll let you in.
