This page collects information about our facilities for doing metalsmithing and jewelry. The metalsmithing and jewelry area is shared with the hot glass working area, so be sure to check the class schedule for both jewelry and glass classes to ensure the area is available for use. (If you're interested in metals outside of the realm of jewelry, that's commonly called metalworking, but we have lots of equipment for that too!)

Equipment:

  • Buffing station with hooded exhaust (tapered mandrels, provide your own buffs/compounds)
  • 6" bench shear for non-ferrous metals including round-stock shearing hole
  • 4" flat rolling mill
  • 2 Acetylene/Air torches (Smith brand with #0 and #1 tips)
  • Pumice pans and fire brick for soldering
  • Jeweler's saw frames
  • Bench pins w/ anvil surfaces
  • Pliers and cutters
  • Small general purpose vise
  • Large heat-resistant work area with exhaust hood

Not provided:

  • All consumables except acetylene (bring your own solder, flux, metals, etc)
