Need a space to practice after class, get away from distractions, or work on your jewery? Use our open studio times to come and use a jewelry bench, tools, and equipment. Enjoy working in the jewelry studio and around other jewelers and students.
The fee for Open Studios is for 1 session. Sign up online for any regularly scheduled Open Studio date. Open studio sessions are in 3 hour increments, so the price is for 3 hours of bench time. There are 9 availalbe benches at each session. Register in advance, but come early to pick a bench and reserve your place. If you need to reschedule your open studio time, that can be arranged with at least 24 hours notice.
This is your time to work on unfinished projects, new projects and more to practice your skills. Or maybe you just don't have space at home to work - rent one of our benches in the class room! Open studio time here at the Silvera Jewelry School is only available to our students who have taken one or more courses with Anat or Joe Silvera, or one of our guest instructors.
Teachers are on hand to supervise your use of the studio, but not to teach new skills. It's important for students to have time to work through their new skills independently. Instructors are available to answer questions and help you with techniques learned in class. Students are expected to be respectful of the tools and equipment, and to only use tools that they have received safety training on during previous classes. If you damage a tool through abuse or misuse, you will be expected to pay for it. Materials are not included. Please bring your own expendable materials, like metal and stones. Enamels kit available for fee. We do not have metal available for sale, but solder, flux and some saw blades are included with each bench.
Open to students who have had one or more classes with Joe or Anat Silvera, or one of our guest instructors at Silvera Jewelry School.
