Have a project to finish but don't have the space or equipment to do so? Now you can rent one of our jeweler's benches and use our studio equipment by the hour! Open studio available 11:00-5:00 Mon.-Fri. by appointment. Please contact Jen to schedule.
Our professional metalsmithing studio has a jeweler's bench for rent Monday-Friday for hourly rental and it will be just you and a Silver Peak instructor (Jen or Kenzie). Experienced metalsmiths who have been properly trained on equipment will have access to a flexshaft, well-ventilated soldering station, Pepe guillotine shear, rolling mill, hydraulic press, belt sander, polishing station, ring sizer, vice, mandrels, and hammers. Jewelers will be required to bring their own hand tools (i.e. files, attachments for flex shafts) and materials (i.e. solder, flux).
Because health and safety for all is our top priority, the benches are spaced for social distancing and our clean protocol is CDC compliant. In addition, we'll be implementing a health screening. There'll be temperature checks at the door and you will be required to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant will be available for use.
This project is funded in part by Boulder County Arts Alliance through the Martha Kate Thomas Fund for Artists, a gift of the Community Foundation serving Boulder County.
