Jewelry & Metals Classes

In our Jewelry & Metals classes participants learn to work with metal from the ground up. Basic techniques and how to use a variety of hand tools, including a jeweler’s saw, files, hammers, punches, and torches will be taught. These tools and techniques can be used to create jewelry such as pendants, earrings, and rings, or 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 the beginner student with flexibility for more experienced metalsmiths. Weekly classes and additional practice time gives students the opportunity to learn new skills while improving existing skills and techniques. Open to students 18 years and up.
