During the three- to four-hour workshops, students can learn the basics of jewelry crafting. In the ring workshop, they make their own silver ring by the end of the class. Students in the pendant class cut, file, and solder metal to make stone settings. The workshop offers a variety of stones for students to set into their own original silver pieces. Students can also learn the basics of welding in one of four welding workshops.
Stonybrook Fine Arts
A mosaic of metal parts forms a silver metal dog standing on its hind legs as it appears to catch a frisbee, while behind it, a brown dog, also made of various metal parts, stares attentively with ears up. These are just two of the sculptures outside the brick confines of Stonybrook Fine Arts, a celebrated studio where both teachers and students invent their own inimitable creations, whether they be jewelry, stone carvings, sculptures, or models for robot minions. Small group classes pepper the schedule, with rare selections such as foundry classes, which teach students to pour molten bronze into ceramic molds, and welding workshops, which inform all levels how to fuse and cut metals with gas torches and plasma cutters. Within the workshop, students are immersed in the entire metal-casting process, pouring and finishing their pieces under the watchful eyes of professional artists-instructors.
