Open studio - metal

During the open studio sessions, you are free to work on your own designs under the guidance of a teacher. To do this you already need a basic knowledge of soldering, filing, sawing and drilling. You can also take this class when you need guidance with designing problems or to consult the library.

Did you already take a workshop in etching, soldering, settings... and would you like to give it another try? You can refresh your skills during this workshop.


Well before the start of the workshop you can send me an email, with the specific questions you have, so I am able to prepare myself for the class. For this workshop there will be a maximum of 5 students.
