Summer Intensives 2017

Our Summer Intensives provide the opportunity to complete approximately one semester’s worth of work in a week, making them ideal for visitors, the time-pressed, and anyone seeking a fully immersive jewelry experience. Like all our classes, our intensives feature personalized, one-on-one instruction on projects appropriate to each student’s skill level and interests. You’ll leave at the end of the week with multiple pieces of handmade jewelry and lots of new skills. Since our instructors work with you individually, you  never have to worry about keeping up with a class that is moving too quickly or too slowly for your comfort.
