Classes are tailored to your jewelry making goals and personal style, and are more in-depth than workshops and the rest. We will focus on learning specific techniques, sharing knowledge and honing your skills to help you improve. Materials are not included, but some classes do offer a kit at an additional charge. We do provide tools, and it is totally fine to bring in outside materials. Drinks and snacks are always allowed as well! While it is possible to complete a project in the time allotted, it isn't always realistic. Students are often encouraged to stay and work in our studio at no extra charge, while your instructor is still near at hand. Classes are intentionally private or kept small, but you can bring friends at a discount. We do schedule some public classes as well, which can be found on our Events page.
In workshops, you will complete a beginner friendly, specific project from start to finish. Materials are almost always included and most projects can usually be completed within an hour. There are many reasons it could take longer, especially if you are with a group. Please let us know if you need to be done by a certain time and we will help keep you on track!
Make & Takes are quick and easy projects at events that are open to everyone who walks in, materials are usually included. We mainly host Make & Takes as part of an event or seasonal holiday, such as first Fridays during Soma After Dark, our neighborhood’s monthly ‘late night’ event. Ourselves and other merchants are open late with pop-up’s, art openings, live music and more. `
Parties can be held in our classroom or off-site. Our room can accommodate up to 15 guests with space for serving anything you’d like to bring. Any of our workshop projects would be appropriate for a party setting, but we also have options for those wanting a more hands off experience. For example, in our earring party guests simply choose their beads and pop them on a few inches of wire, your hostess does the rest. The fun is in designing your earrings and admiring all the beads, with more time to socialize and enjoy refreshments. If you have a special project in mind, such as bridesmaid’s jewelry, we can do that to! With this option we will work with you to plan your design and price your project ahead of time, so it is all ready for your custom crafting event. `
