Bench Hours/Open Studio

Los Angeles, CA , United States

About Your Host

The August Axel Jewelry Studio is a creative workshop in Venice Beach, CA. The Studio and course offerings were designed to serve a range of skills and interests from talented tinkerers to advanced artists. Our goal is to provide solid and safe bench-instruction, combined with hands-on practice, so artists may operate safely, independently and successfully. COURSES: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Soldering. Bezel Setting. Tube Setting. Flush Setting. Prong Setting. Metalsmithing. Cold-Connections. Wire Wrapping. Knotting. Private or Group Lessons. And more. INSTRUCTORS: As Owner and Senior Instructor, Christy Sears brings a wealth of knowledge to the bench. With 15+ years of jewelry soldering and metal fabrication, endless patience and a healthy sense of humor, she creates a warm and welcoming learning environment. Not only does she believe in teaching "how", but "why" and this has made all of the difference to her students. All of the August Axel Jewelry Studio instructors create the same atmosphere, so students may reach their goals.

What we'll do

Hi Students, these time slots are set aside so you may visit the Studio, outside of classes, to practice your techniques and decide which tools feel best in your hand. You will be responsible for supplying your own metals, stones and solder. Please let me know in advance which tools will be helpful, so I make sure to have the rolling mill cleaned or the acetylene tanks filled, etc. I am present in the Studio to assist, but not teach, as I develop my own projects. Additional hours may be added on-site. Each session is two hours, with the potential to extend based on Instructor availability. See you soon!
