Jewelry & Metals

Taught in our Metals Department, jewelry-making classes include the traditional focus on technique and materials, but have moved beyond those skills to also include contemporary considerations of concept, design, and experimentation.

Supplies Note:
Unless noted, tuition for metals classes covers basic studio supplies, chemicals, tools and equipment. However, students should anticipate additional fees for other tools, metal and findings for their samples or projects. Most supplies are available for purchase directly from the Metals Department during class time or Open Lab.

Material List:  
Click here to see if your class has a material list. Classes not listed here will either have required materials in the class description, discuss needed materials during the first class, or the materials will be supplied.

Open Lab:
Open lab sessions are free and available for all enrolled students (including students that take weekend classes) at the following times: Mon & Wed, 12:00 - 3:00 PM, Fri,  1:00 - 4:00 PM,  Sat, 10:00 AM -  3:00 PM. Please note that while there will be a lab monitor on duty during open studio sessions, for safety reasons, there is no official instruction provided during these times, unless agreed upon between you and an instructor. Students should use only the tools, equipment and materials demonstrated and covered by your instructor during the course. 

No lab: Sept 17, 29 & 30, Oct 7, Nov 4 & 18 or when a class is in session.
