NOTE: The Craft Center Does Not Offer Classes in the Summer, but we've left the listings up to give you an idea of what will be coming up in Fall of 2024!

The jewelry studio features a number of torches and the necessary ventilation, a pickle for metal jewelry, large worktables, and a bang room with anvils for shaping metal pieces. 

Jewelry Tech Time

Mo can help get you started as you learn together, or just give you an orientation!

Classes are small and intimate, allowing for quality instructor time. In order to sign up for a class, please come into the Craft Center during our Open Hours.
