Tool Training & Testing: Jewelry Studio

November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$95

Class Description
This is a one-session class, choose the date that works for you!

Tool Training is the fastest way to start working independently in the Artisan’s Asylum Jewelry Shop and is designed for those with some level of jewelry experience, whether you’re an occasional hobbyist or a seasoned metalsmith.

In one 3-hour session, students will get up to speed on our particular shop procedures and layout as well as safety and basic use of the air-acetylene torches, forming tools, flex shafts, and the polishing machine. For those who have more experience, other tools may be covered as time allows.

This class does not teach fabrication skills such as soldering, sawing, etc. Those who are completely new to jewelry or metalsmithing are advised to take the multi-week Jewelry 101 class or a day-long Jewelry Shop Orientation.

Individual Tool Testing will follow at least one week after the Tool Training session by making an appointment with the instructor. Testing is necessary before a member is allowed to work independently in the shop.

Class Goals 
The goal of this class is to prepare you to complete the Individual Tool Testing and safely use the Artisan’s Asylum Jewelry Shop on your own.

Materials Fee
$0

Materials Provided
All necessary materials will be provided.

Prerequisites
Because this class does not teach jewelry-making skills, some prior jewelry-making experience is necessary (whether you are a self-taught beginner or a professionally-trained metalsmith).
