Metalworks SF

This is a wonderful place to experience the joy of hand fabrication, casting, and metalwork. We encourage a hands on, somatic approach to Jewelry making, which echoes a not so distant past of traditional craft. We are interested in creating crafts people who are familiar with the activity and process of the bench Jeweler. By being in this space, students will gain access to a tradition of creating wearable art, and the opportunity to stretch artistic boundaries of Jewelry craft. Our space is located in the heart of North Beach, and has a deep connection to the Artistic heart of San Francisco.
