Jewelry and Metals Open Studio LIFE 2046


with John Heller

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 31, 2023 at 3:30 pm

The Open Studio allows students to use the equipment in the Metals Laboratory to create small artistic pieces in silver, copper, and brass (no iron or steel), enamel, repoussé and cut, grind, polish, and set semi-precious stones. The studio not only presents the opportunity to use equipment in a safe environment that the student may not have at home but to also interact with other artists in a synergetic manner. This is not primarily an instructional course; only limited assistance is available. Students are responsible for providing all the components for their projects and their consumable supplies. For instance, saw frames are available but saw blades are not provided. There will be an Equipment Review and a Safety Test students must pass before they will be cleared for the use of the equipment. Lab fees are included in the cost of the class.
