About Pocosin Arts

jewelry & metals classes

In our Jewelry & Metals classes participants learn the basic metal working techniques and how to use a variety of hand tools, including a jeweler’s saw, files, hammer, and torches. These tools and techniques can be used to create pendants, earrings, rings, and other small-scale metal objects such as a cup. Learn to develop exciting forms in combination with texture and color to create unique and beautiful jewelry.

Structured for students of all levels, weekly classes and additional practice time give students the opportunity to learn new skills while improving existing skills and techniques. Open to students 18 years and up.

Have fun and learn the basics of jewelry making and metalwork in the Pocosin Arts metals studio!
