Open Studio - Plans & Pricing
Open Studio is offered to students and local artists who would like access to our fully equipped classroom. It is a perfect time to finish up projects and use our specialized equipment.
Monitored Open Studio is open to any student who is enrolled in or has completed at least one metalsmithing course. This is a time to work independently on projects, but there will be a monitor in the room to help people find tools and ensure safe studio practices.
Specified equipment includes tanks/gas, metal shear, rolling mill, flex shaft, buffing wheel, grinders, steamers, vises, casting equipment and specialty hand tools. Individuals are encouraged to ask the shop monitor questions when they are getting familiar with the studio. If you damage a tool you are responsible for fixing or replacing the tool. The Director will determine whether the tool needs to be replaced or fixed. The studio is monitored by cameras.
Studio renters are required to bring in supplies and materials which include saw blades drill bits, flux, solder, metal, shears, scribe, pre-cut stones and gems, ruler and other tools you use on a regular basis.
