Playing with ideas is as important and informative as getting to know your materials. One informs the other. In these courses we will explore the relationships between inspiration, design, and the final piece. Image and materials research will be taught in tandem with technical processes. The goal is to help you strengthen your concepts and strategies for development.
Basic metalsmithing and jewelry experience required.
Supplies: Bring your basic tools and supplies to the first class. Additional materials will be purchased as needed. If there is something specific you want to work with please bring it.
All students receive a 50% discount on hourly and daily bench rentals throughout the duration of their course.Cancellation Policy For a full refund (less a 5% processing fee) you must cancel no later than 2 weeks before the start date. Any cancellation after that date, but before the day of the first class meeting, will turn your payment into a studio credit redeemable for up to one year.
Withdrawals from class 7 days prior to the start of the class will receive a full refund for the class minus a 5% processing fee. If cancellation occurs 3-6 days prior to the class, we will provide a 50% refund. Cancellations 48 hours or less receive a 25% refund. Refunds will not be provided for no-shows or same-day cancellations.
We do not refund tuition for classes that students miss due to their own circumstances. Students enrolled in multi-session studio courses (excluding workshops and intensives) may make-up missed class sessions during open studio hours for up to two weeks after the last class meeting.
We reserve the right to cancel or discontinue any class, in which case you may choose to receive a refund, apply the class credit towards a different course, or receive a tuition credit for future use. Tuition credits are valid for up to one year. Refunds will be issued within 30 days.
