Due to the pandemic we have made the decision to close Atlanta Art Worx Studio + Supply to focus on other endeavors, including developing The Smithery’s online classes + workshops and getting back to the bench in our new Maine tiny store-front.
We are so humbled and grateful that so many students have taken and enjoyed our classes over the years and hope that this video content reaches all of those who could not be here with us in the studio. Our great studio content is being video-fied for you to learn at your own pace, in your own space via Teachable! Please check out The Smithery : Modern Metalsmithing for our fun, technical, and informative lessons.
I look towards the future with excitement and hope the same for you in your jewelry making journey.
