Become familiar with the Jewelry Studio space and tools at BARN. Students of all levels learn how to safely and efficiently use jeweler's tools through instructor demonstration and guided, hands-on practice.
Start with a studio tour/facility walk-through and learn about the studio's guidelines, safety protocols and policies. Learn how to order materials and tools, acquire a jewelry studio skills card, and all about our open studio.
The skills covered include how to safely use a jeweler’s saw, bench shear, step shear, disc cutters, files, hammer identification, stamping tools, dapping tools, pliers, rolling mill, flex shaft, and buffing wheel. All of these skills will help you feel more comfortable and confident in our studio or yours and ready you for project classes. Each student takes home their sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.
