Craft with Metal
Looking for a fun and unique craft experience?
All workshops are open anyone looking for an enjoyable make & take project, or those who are just interested in jewelry making and want to experience a bit of metalsmithing.
Learn in a relaxing environment, enjoy the process, and go home with your own hand crafted jewelry.
All sessions are held in my bright & spacious studio.
Located in Downtown Winona, the studio is connected to my brick & mortar shop,
ORNO Gift + Home.
Workshops dates are typically updated on a bi-monthly basis.
Following me on Instagram or Facebook, or signing up for my newsletter is the best way to get new date announcements
Most workshops are limited to 4 participants.
This allows for plenty of time to ask questions and for individual instruction throughout the class.
*Please note that some classes have participation minimums so please read each listing carefully.
Want to book your own group?
Private workshops are available for 4-6 participants, depending on the class.
One on one metalsmithing lessons are also available.
These are great for beginners or someone who has some of the basics but would like to expand their skillset or work on a specific project.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions or are interested in booking private lessons or workshops.
Please read through all of the workshop info below before purchasing.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. ALL TOOLS AND MATERIALS INCLUDED :
These workshops are for students of all levels. No experience is required, just the willingness to learn. Please note that while experience isn't needed, some classes are more challenging than others. Please read the description carefully before purchasing.
Each student will have their own set of hand tools and materials to work with. The goal is to have fun, learn something new, and go home with jewelry that you made. These laid back workshops are a great idea as an intro to jewelry and metal work or as a fun thing to do with a friend.
CANCELLATION POLICY :
All workshop seats are considered non-refundable.
If you would like to reschedule for a future class, you must contact me 72 hours and I will issue you a credit for your class fee to use at another time.
Many classes have a participant minimum. If we do have reach the minimum number of participants by 48 hours prior, I will notify you by email and give you the option to reschedule or issue you a credit or refund.
I do my best to get all seats filled for each workshop, but occasionally there aren't enough people for it to make sense to move forward.
If you need to cancel, please contact me as soon as possible and I will do what I can to help you fill your seat. If we can find a substitute for your seat, you will then receive a refund.
If substittue is not found, you will forfeit your payment.
Last minute cancellations (less than 48 hrs) and “no-shows” will not be refunded or rescheduled.
Testing positive for Covid-19 is an acceptable reason for last minute rescheduling.
Please stay home if you are sick.
COVID-19 SAFETY :
My studio is equipped with high-quality air purifiers that run during all workshops as a layer of mitigation. You will be given a KN95 mask to use for your protection from dust and particulates, and you'll also be asked to wear them during demonstrations while students are gathered very close to the instructor.
REMINDER EMAIL :
You will first get an email confirmation of your order after you pay.
48 hours prior to the workshop you will get a reminder email with important info about the workshop including where to go, what to wear, and other pertinent info.
Please be check your spam folder if you don't see the email from me.
AGE RESTRICTIONS :
For most workshops participants must be 16+ to attend. For those under the age of 18, they must have a waiver completed by a parent or guardian at the time of drop off.
Some workshops are for ages 12 and up. Age requirements are always listed in the course description.
Please read the course description in full before purchasing.
HOW TO "GIFT" A WORKSHOP :
If you would like to purchase a workshop as a gift for someone else you can choose the workshop and the date that you think they would like. Purchase as usual with your info. Then email me to let me know that someone else will be attending the workshop and send me their email address so that the reminder email can go to them instead of you.
If you aren't sure they can make the dates availlable work, I suggest purchasing a gift card that they can use toward the purchase of a workshop seat of their choosing.
