About this Class

This class is for students of all experience levels to become familiar with the Jewelry Studio space and tools.

Start with a studio tour/facility walk-through and learn about the studio's guidelines, safety protocols and policies. Learn how to order materials and tools, acquire a Jewelry Studio skills card, and all about open studio.

Skills covered include how to safely use a jeweler’s saw, bench shear, step shear, disc cutters, files, hammer identification, stamping tools, dapping tools, pliers, rolling mill, flex shaft, and buffing wheel. All of these skills will help you feel more comfortable and confident in our studio or yours and ready you for project classes. Each student takes home their sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.

This will be the last Introduction to Jewelry: Skills Class for the summer. It will not be offered again until fall. 


  • The $30 materials fee included in the cost of the class covers all materials needed. 
  • We will take a lunch break if you want to bring food/snacks. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave on the lower level.


All materials and tools needed will be provided during class.
