These Open Studio Times are unguided, meaning you will be working on your own. The office staff and instructors ARE NOT AVAILABLE to answer questions during OST.
Regular OST is between 9am – 4pm Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday, space permitting. Please check the calendar or call for availability on other days.
Cost for Regular OST is $32 for four hours,cash or check only, please!
Space is reserved by calling the school administrator and scheduling a time.
*Please call ahead for scheduling. We occasionally have multiple classes going on at the same time, which limits our availabiltiy for OST space.
*Hours can be flexible upon request. Call us to schedule a time that works for you!
Open Studio is a wonderful opportunity for you to have a place to work on projects, and practice what was learned in class. You will have full access to a jeweler's bench, soldering station, flexshaft, and the buffers. As of August 1, 2016, your fee includes our OST Tool Kit which contains basic metalsmithing tools!You are required to bring your own supplies, solders, texture plates, and any other materials needed to work on your projects.
When your time has ended, you are required to thoroughly clean all the work areas you used, including brushing off the jeweler’s bench, and wiping down the soldering stations. Set up and tear down are part of your OST. We ask for you to please be cleaned up, packed up, and out the door on time.
