Studio 34 Creative Arts Center was named Top Ten Learning Centers in Rochester.
Making metal rings is for beginners and those with little or no prior jewelry making experience. Design and create a ring for yourself or your partner as first project. Choose from a textured or shiny band that can be stamped with initials or significant dates. Leave with the ability to make more jewelry. This fun experience provides lots of hands on experience. Use metalsmith hand tools to learn basic techniques such as sawing, texturing, stamping, filing, and finishing. The instructor demonstrates and solders student rings. Soldering techniques are not taught in this basic class (see Soldering 101 and Soldering Boot Camp). Studio 34 is known for our small, personal classes. Band ring class has a maximum of just 4 students for best student/teacher ratio.
Cost: $200/ couple . Sterling silver is included. Please bring safety glasses or purchase a pair from the studio ($5). Wear closed toe shoes. No sandals please. If you prefer to use copper or yellow brass, class cost is $20 less. This class is also offered for individual students. See Introduction to Metalsmith Techniques: Rings
