About Your Host

Creative Side Jewelry Academy began in 2006 when Director and custom jewelry maker, Courtney Gray, decided to open the doors of her studio for other jewelry artists to collaborate, share equipment, learn, and teach new skills. The intention of Creative Side is to provide a comfortable, fun, professional and creatively inspiring studio space where anyone can come learn, begin and build a skill set and career in the ever expanding craft of jewelry making. The Creative Side community has flourished over the years and now hosts master instructors from all over the world, year round, right here in Austin. With over 75 courses a semester, students from all over the world come to immerse themselves in the studio and get hands-on with instructors. Offering weekend, week long, evening, and daytime courses that cover a wide array of techniques, students can develop their own approach and style in the craft on their own schedule. "My goal is to provide accessible courses that teach real skills at the bench. Whether you are a serious hobbyist, looking for employment with a jeweler or planning to start your own business our curriculum will get you proficient in the craft. I hand pick our instructors who will provide true expertise, tricks and amazing tips to create ease at the bench for students." Courtney Gray, Creative Director
