CREATE THE JEWELS OF YOUR DREAMS!
Study online with one of the most celebrated hands-on goldsmiths of our time, Kent Raible.
For experienced metalsmiths (intermediate to advanced) who want to improve their skills and be more inspired in their designs, we offer online programs designed to reduce your learning curve and help you transform that vision in your head into a masterpiece you can touch.
If you can file, saw and solder with proficiency, these classes will take your work to the next level!
If you are already a professional metalsmith, you will be able to dive into the more complex aspects of these lessons. Many of our students repeat our courses. The first time around they work on perfecting a set of skills, the second time, they work to incorporate these skills into their own work, with Kent there to help them along.
We hope you will join us today!
