Open Studio, Has Prerequisite

Jewelry & Fine Metals Studio



This open studio provides an opportunity for BARN members and the jewelry community to pursue self-directed work in a collaborative environment - whether to finish class projects or work on independent projects.

This is not a class and no formal instruction will be given. A trained safety monitor is always on duty.

Some metals are available for purchase (please bring cash or check). Ask the studio monitor for assistance.

Due to the safety requirements for using dry enamel, enameling is not offered during regular open studio time.



  • A $12 enamel consumables┬ámaterials fee is included in your registration.
  • To get the most out of this enameling open studio, it is recommended to prepare your metal in advance so you can focus on sifting techniques and kiln or torch use.


Class Policies

  • Ages 14 and up are welcome
