Independent Study Happy Hour

$50 for single class

or

$235 for a bundle of 8 classes.  (Classes do not need to be attended in consecutive order.  Classes expire 6 months from date of purchase.)  When you purchase the bundle, it doesn't register you for specific dates.  Please email or text the studio at least 3 days before class to sign up and verify space.

 

This is a loosely structured class offering students a fun time to work on independent projects or that week's suggested project/challenge with the assistance of an instructor.  We will provide occasional teacher demos.  

 

Suggested Projects: (New class topics will be announced at least a month in advance.)

October 29 - Challenge: Create a piece inspired by Dia De Los Muertos.

November 5 - Demo: Hair sticks

November 12 - Demo: Twisting wire

November 19 - Challenge: Create an ornament or piece inspired by fall.

Please Note:  

Challenges are a way for you to think outside of the box and challenge yourself.  There is no right way to be inspired by something.  When we say create a piece inspired by, go with whatever comes to mind.  The fun part is that this will be different for everyone.

 

Supplies/Materials: 

Students are responsible for deciding what supplies are needed for their independent projects and for any challenges.  Suggested materials will be noted for any specific projects listed.  Always bring the typical soldering and polishing materials you use.

 

Prerequisite:

Beginning jewelry or higher.  Students must have the fundamentals of metalsmithing.  We will not be teaching new skills (sawing, soldering, stone setting etc.). This is a project based class.
