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! We don't offer training, instruction, or troubleshooting during open studio, each person is responsible to work safely on their own. Open studio available 9:30-2:30 Monday through Thursday by appointment. Please contact Jen to schedule.
Our professional metalsmithing studio has jeweler's benches for rent Monday-Thursday 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 flex shaft, well-ventilated soldering station, Pepe guillotine shear, rolling mill, belt sander, polishing station, ring sizer, vise, bracelet and ring mandrels, and hammers. Previous training with said tools is required to use them. Jewelers will be required to bring their own materials (i.e. metal) and consumables (i.e. saw blades, sand paper, attachments for flex shafts, solder, flux, etc.)
Because health and safety for all is our top priority, reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance to allow for social distancing and our clean protocol is CDC compliant. In addition, we'll be implementing a health screening with temperature checks at the door and you will be required to wear a mask while indoors. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant will be available for use.
