Crafting something with your hands inspires a feeling of artistic accomplishment, while molding something with your feet inspires only feelings of ticklishness. Put your dexterous digits to use with today's Groupon to Stonybrook Fine Arts in Jamaica Plain. Choose between two options:

  • For $50, you get a ring workshop (a $100 value).
  • For $75, you get a welding workshop (a $150 value).

Both workshops include all necessary materials.

Stonybrook's talented crew of artists impart the basics of sculpting and metalworking with classes and workshops in a welcoming neighborhood studio. The four-hour ring-making workshop gives circular craftspeople hands-on practice at forging their own bauble using several jewelry-making techniques. By the end of class, you'll have successfully created one ring, which you can then use to pop the question or telekinetically generate objects out of green energy. If you'd rather develop a skill with more practical applications, the three-hour introduction to welding familiarizes metal-molding neophytes with oxy-acetylene welding and torch cutting, a technique normally reserved for tin-man heart-replacement surgeries.

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.

My son really enjoyed the critter workshop. He had a good time learning how to weld, and he liked the teachers there. He's looking forward to another class!
