WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
Fantastic place, super professional workshops, and a great atmosphere, I love being there!
A great place to take classes in printmaking, metal casting, blacksmithing and many other topics. They can also create custom team building events. All that along with the art show space and rental studios make this a very active place. Drop by and check them out!
Great place for art classes or you can rent studio space. Metalsmithing, lithography, printing, printmaking, and lots more. Clean facility and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.
OUR MASTER CLASS INSTRUCTORS
I am a raising and chasing artist using chisels to sculpt metal. My particular focus is exploring and pushing the natural boundaries of what a single unbroken piece of material can create. I want to make things the world has not seen in a long time, using recognizably traditional human powered techniques. Traditions are only as healthy as the people who keep them alive, and that is the journey I want to share. I want to share the collective effort of breathing new life into these human metal working techniques.
