This three week (in-studio) class is designed for students ages 12-16 to become familiar with the jewelry studio space and tools. You will learn how to safely and efficiently use jeweler's tools through instructor demonstration and guided hands-on practice exercises. Students will start with a studio tour/facility walk through, studio guidelines, safety and policies. In addition, you will learn how to order materials & tools, how to acquire a skills card and learn about our open studio protocols.

The skills you will be introduced to are: how to safely use a jeweler’s saw, files, disc cutters, stamping tools, dapping tools, pliers, rolling mill, flex shaft.

Instructor: 

Sarah Jones is a BARN founding member, jewelry studio programming and steering committee member. She is a local Bainbridge Island artist, and teacher with experience in fine metal arts, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, stained glass, and photography. 

Because Sarah is a visual and tactile learner herself, her classes typically involve a lot of hands-on learning time. In addition, Sarah’s classes are accompanied by printed information and resources for her students to refer back to when practicing their new skills. 

Sarah’s art has been displayed in the Seattle Metals Guild exhibitions and Bainbridge Arts & Craft exhibitions.
