Choose Between Two Options
- $89 for a welding, ring-making, or pendant-making workshop for one (a $150 value)
- $175 for one of the above workshops for two (a $300 value)
During the three- to four-hour workshops, students learn the basics of welding or jewelry making. The welding workshops cover safety, tool use and an intro to one type of welding (Oxy, Stick, MIG or TIG). In the ring or pendant workshop, participants learn cutting, filing, sizing, texturing and soldering. Students create a copper ring to start and then a finished one in silver or a basic stone setting using a bezel in the pendant workshop. A variety of stones are available for students to set into their own original silver pieces.
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.
