Private Classes


Private Classes

For those who want a longer time in the studio, more intense instruction with only a few other students present, the Private Classes fulfill this need. Individual projects which are technically more involved can be developed more fully in these intimate 4 hour classes. Model-making and molds can be created to facilitate limited-edition series, or one of a kind pieces developed which are technically more advanced. More time is spent with individual class members to assure they are getting the most out of their jewelry-making experience. Fabrication of wire & sheet from poured ingots will be covered, as well as carved wax models, cutting, forming and finishing techniques.

Supplies: Metals, supplies and tools can be purchased during class time.
Duration: These classes are held for 4 hours, once a week, for 8 weeks (Summer session is 5 weeks, discounted fee).
Class size: Limited to a maximum of 4 students per class.
Experience: No previous experience required. All levels of experience are welcome!
Fee: $475.00 per student

Private Class Times (choose one):

* Monday 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
* Tuesday 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
* Wednesday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Please contact us if the class you desire is out of stock, we may have spaces available! Or, let us know if you want to be added to a future class not yet listed.
