Classes and Kid's Camps
We have opened our studio space to jewelry classes!
Laura Lady previously taught at the Art's Center of the Capital Region, and River Rocks and Beads. She also regularly teaches happy hour jewelry making events at local breweries, cideries and distilleries including Rare Form and Nine Pin Cider. She loves sharing her passion for jewelry making and her strong background in the industry coupled with her schooling from the prestigious New Approach School for Jewelers make her the perfect bubbly fun and knowledgable guide.
As part of the generous COVID relief grant given to us by the city of Albany, and Capitalize Albany, we have been able to equip our studio space with a state of the art HEPA air filtration device, professional level polishing equipment, student jewelry work stations, lost wax casting equipment, glassworking equipment, electroforming equipment, soldering equipment and 3D rendering technology, to name a few things!
Our teaching studio at 40 Broadway, is conveniently located off of 787, with ample off street parking.
We are pleased to announce we are now offering one-on-one intensives to run monthly. Intensives are eight hours of instruction and include all materials, tools and access to the studio space.
Additionally, we have opened up the roster to half day kid's summer camps. Our summer camps are run with a flexible teaching schedule, to encourage children to learn more about jewelry making. It is a STEAM based curriculum, and we go over the projects together as a group, and ask that the campers try the project once, and if they don't enjoy it they can move on to something else.
Some images of projects previous campers have made are below. Projects include a variety of mediums and techniques including, but not limited to, wire working/cold fusion techniques, electroforming (using electricity and polarization to create metalworked jewelry), torch soldering, making stacking rings... the list goes on.
PLEASE NOTE: OUR KIDS CAMPS CAN ONLY RUN IF WE HAVE ENOUGH STUDENTS. IF CAMPS DO NOT RUN, PARENTS HAVE THE OPTION OF DOING AN INTENSIVE IN LIEU OF THE WEEK LONG KIDS CAMPS
Big Kid's Camps (ages 9-11) and our Pre & Teen Camps (ages12-17). AUGUST 8-12 AUGUST 1-5
Waiver will be sent out for both the one-on-one intensives and the kid's summer camps to the email addresses provided at time of purchase.
