What you'll do

Portland is known for its talented craftspeople. In this class you will be able to work in a fully-equipped jewelry studio and see where the magic happens. No experience necessary! All tools and materials are included. All you have to do is show up ready to learn. Have you ever wanted to design and create your very own pair of statement earrings? In this workshop you will learn the basic metalsmithing techniques needed to bring your idea to completion. We will have time to sketch out some ideas, go over a few different techniques, and then get to work. Techniques covered: using a jeweler's saw to cut your metal, smoothing the edges with a file, hammering textures and shaping, drilling holes, using pliers, and forming your ear-wires. Please note that soldering with the torch will not be covered in this class. The goal is to have fun, learn something new, and go home with jewelry that you made. These laid-back workshops are perfect as an intro to jewelry work or as a fun thing to do with a friend.

Hello! My name is Stacey Mairs and I am the founder of Midnight Pacific Studio. After spending years as a ceramic artist, carpenter, and woodworker, I finally discovered my love of working with metal. I have been focusing on jewelry full-time since 2014. I am excited to be able to share the skills that I have learned over the years. I built my studio space as a comfortable and inspiring classroom to host jewelry workshops and have gotten great response. It is so fun to see people light up as they finish jewelry that they made themselves! www.midnightpacificstudio.com Instagram @midnightpacific
