Intro To Metalsmithing: Getting To Know Your Tools $68
"/

In Getting To Know Your Tools, students will begin learning about and using hand tools traditionally used by metalsmiths. This is a great intro class to learn some simple basics with affordable tools. Students will learn these basic skills by making their own pendants from a sheet of sterling silver.  They will draw a simple, minimalist shape (diamond, triangle, circle, crescent, etc… NO STARS OR OTHER COMPLEX SHAPES) within a square inch of sterling silver.  Then students will saw out their shape using a handsaw, file down the rough edges using jewelry files, and sand the metal until it is smooth with fine sandpaper.  Students will finish off their own pendant piece by poking a hole in the metal and attaching a jump ring to their pendant so it will easily attach to a chain or leather cord.

Students will leave class with a finished pendant that they designed and constructed from base materials as well as a ‘zine titled ‘What We Learned In Class’, for future reference if they choose to continue their practice in metal smithing.  They will also take a foundational understanding of metal smithing, jewelry making, and its history home with them. 

LONG HAIRED STUDENTS: HAIR SHOULD BE WORN TIED BACK, SHORTER HAIR SHOULD BE TUCKED BEHIND THE EAR OR SECURED WITH BOBBY PINS.

Supplies needed: None

Teacher Bio: Heather is a jeweler and metal smith living and working out of Oakland, CA by way of Columbia, South Carolina.  Her love of jewelry was passed down to her from her mama and grandmothers.  The matriarchs in Heather’s family taught her about stones, their symbolism, and to have an appreciation for good design and craftsmanship.  Her inspiration comes from the American South, the artisans and crafts people of the region, and the creative people in her life.  She primarily works with sterling silver and stones that she is drawn to.  The website for her up and coming jewelry line, Ida Mae Rising, is: www.idamaerising.com.

Screen Printing For Newbies $45
/

Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative!

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. It does not come with your own screens or artwork, however you can buy one with your ticker and have it ready for class for an extra fee. In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet.

supplies needed:
none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

getting your own custom screen for class & home printing: For an additional $20 we can burn ONE custom image onto a screen of ours for the night (meaning you cannot take it home or use it again) OR for $45 we can make you a custom screen you can take home with up to THREE custom images..... BUT you do have to nerd out some graphics work or have a graphic design friendly friend help you with your image so it comes out perfect since screening can be a complicated beast. Please click here for image instructions and all images are due by the SUNDAY BEFORE CLASS. Sooner- the better, as we cannot print custom images with less than 72 hours to class time. All images must be greyscale, in psd or jpeg form and be atleast 225 dpi or greater (300 is ideal). Please check out the link for more nerdy info about images and instructions. As well all images should be emailed to images@workshopsf.org

This class is designed to give you the ability to make unique metal jewelry you like, easily and inexpensively. You’ll walk out with a resource guide with tips, pointers and places to shop and up to two unique pieces you create in class.

supplies needed: (All optional) Design journal or notebook, old jewelry to be re-worked, beads, special ear hooks, nice chain that you prefer and textured fabric ( for class two).

Intro To Metalsmithing: Getting To Know Your Tools $68
/

In Getting To Know Your Tools, students will begin learning about and using hand tools traditionally used by metalsmiths. This is a great intro class to learn some simple basics with affordable tools. Students will learn these basic skills by making their own pendants from a sheet of sterling silver.  They will draw a simple, minimalist shape (diamond, triangle, circle, crescent, etc… NO STARS OR OTHER COMPLEX SHAPES) within a square inch of sterling silver.  Then students will saw out their shape using a handsaw, file down the rough edges using jewelry files, and sand the metal until it is smooth with fine sandpaper.  Students will finish off their own pendant piece by poking a hole in the metal and attaching a jump ring to their pendant so it will easily attach to a chain or leather cord.

Students will leave class with a finished pendant that they designed and constructed from base materials as well as a ‘zine titled ‘What We Learned In Class’, for future reference if they choose to continue their practice in metal smithing.  They will also take a foundational understanding of metal smithing, jewelry making, and its history home with them. 

LONG HAIRED STUDENTS: HAIR SHOULD BE WORN TIED BACK, SHORTER HAIR SHOULD BE TUCKED BEHIND THE EAR OR SECURED WITH BOBBY PINS.

Supplies needed: None

Teacher Bio: Heather is a jeweler and metal smith living and working out of Oakland, CA by way of Columbia, South Carolina.  Her love of jewelry was passed down to her from her mama and grandmothers.  The matriarchs in Heather’s family taught her about stones, their symbolism, and to have an appreciation for good design and craftsmanship.  Her inspiration comes from the American South, the artisans and crafts people of the region, and the creative people in her life.  She primarily works with sterling silver and stones that she is drawn to.  The website for her up and coming jewelry line, Ida Mae Rising, is: www.idamaerising.com.

Dump out the French’s and say au revoir to your Grey Poupon! Who needs ‘em when you can make your own mustard from scratch? In this class, Kelly McVicker of McVicker Pickles will guide you through the mustard-making process step-by-step using some amazing and unique flavor combinations such as honey-stout, basil-garlic, or chipotle-ginger that will transform your hot dogs, sandwiches and sausages from simple Pac Bell park staples to bona-fide, pinky-out delicacies!

You will start off by sampling an assortment of mustards including homemade and store-bought varieties to compare taste profiles and textures. Kelly will discuss flavor pairings that you can experiment with to make your own special blend.

Supplies needed: OPTIONAL: bring a bottle of your favorite beer to use as as base for your mustard (or go ahead and bring a whole 6-pack to enjoy during class--extra credit!) All other ingredients and jars for your mustard creations will be provided in class.

Intro To Metalsmithing: Getting To Know Your Tools $68
/

In Getting To Know Your Tools, students will begin learning about and using hand tools traditionally used by metalsmiths. This is a great intro class to learn some simple basics with affordable tools. Students will learn these basic skills by making their own pendants from a sheet of sterling silver.  They will draw a simple, minimalist shape (diamond, triangle, circle, crescent, etc… NO STARS OR OTHER COMPLEX SHAPES) within a square inch of sterling silver.  Then students will saw out their shape using a handsaw, file down the rough edges using jewelry files, and sand the metal until it is smooth with fine sandpaper.  Students will finish off their own pendant piece by poking a hole in the metal and attaching a jump ring to their pendant so it will easily attach to a chain or leather cord.

Students will leave class with a finished pendant that they designed and constructed from base materials as well as a ‘zine titled ‘What We Learned In Class’, for future reference if they choose to continue their practice in metal smithing.  They will also take a foundational understanding of metal smithing, jewelry making, and its history home with them. 

LONG HAIRED STUDENTS: HAIR SHOULD BE WORN TIED BACK, SHORTER HAIR SHOULD BE TUCKED BEHIND THE EAR OR SECURED WITH BOBBY PINS.

Supplies needed: None

We’re taking pickling up a notch in this new class with our pickling maven, Kelly McVicker. We think it’s a damn shame that whiskey"s reputation has been tarnished by its association with the dreaded whiskey d*ck, so we"re here to defend its honor with...whiskey picks!

Each class will differ based on what"s in season, but expect to learn recipes like Maple-Whiskey Pickles, Bourbon-Pickled Jalapenos (our favorite at workshop- we are ADDICTED) and smoky Porter Pickles using Speakeasy"s Payback Porter beer. Of course, we couldn"t just throw these elixirs into the brine without tasting them first, (RIGHT?) so we"ll sample a few whiskeys as we go and chase "em down with pickle backs. We"ll also toss in a special part of class where Jon, our resident teacher"s assistant and fried pickle dude, will show you how to make fried pickles using a simple $40 fryer and Workshop"s secret recipe that you can replicate at home. We"ll be sure to toss a few bourbon jalapenos and other goodies into the fryer too. Everyone will get an order with class. YUM!

Screen Printing For Newbies $45
/

Learn the basics of screen printing, from burning an image onto a screen to transferring that image onto a surface (paper, fabric, undies, perhaps?) You’ll learn how to coat a screen, burn it using a vacuum exposure unit and how to use a press (tabletop and tee shirt press). There are over 18 water soluble ink colors for you to use in your printing. You will work with our house screens, which include rad images such as fun phrases, spirit animals, popular graphics and many to choose from. You will walk out of this class understanding the basics of ONE COLOR printing. You will have the knowledge to print at home, at Workshop for additional screen printing classes, or other printing spaces in the city. We supply several cool papers, patches and have some fun things for sale that you can print on (such as tees, totes and koozies).  This class is a great starter class, but it is not to be substituted for a multiple-week, intensive course. It will review the basics and give you some hands-on experience with screen printing. This class includes one hour of instruction/demo and two hours of time to print, work with the instructor on pulling images, explore, and get creative!

Since screening can be complicated, with alot of equipment & screens are expensive ( as well as easy to ruin), we make this class a great starter class. It does not come with your own screens or artwork, however you can buy one with your ticker and have it ready for class for an extra fee. In class, you will be using our house screens which have multiple images and vary all the time. Again, this is a starter class and only 3 hours so expect to have some fun, print some fun postcards, art prints and more using our screens and get a great base. Printing is something that takes time to learn, so dont expect to come out with your own tee shirt line here. Its a great introduction to it and the fun part, that takes some practice- the printing. Graphic design and burning your own screen yourself are things you can find in multi week classes at other facilites. As in any printing, it is messy and involve cleaning your screens after you use them- so please skip any prada and dress comfty, at time you can get wet.

supplies needed:
none, but feel free to bring extra fabric, paper, canvases, pillowcases, aprons, t-shirts or other goodies if you would like to screen Workshop images onto them to take home. we do offer limited items for sale that you can purchase to print.

getting your own custom screen for class & home printing: For an additional $20 we can burn ONE custom image onto a screen of ours for the night (meaning you cannot take it home or use it again) OR for $45 we can make you a custom screen you can take home with up to THREE custom images..... BUT you do have to nerd out some graphics work or have a graphic design friendly friend help you with your image so it comes out perfect since screening can be a complicated beast. Please click here for image instructions and all images are due by the SUNDAY BEFORE CLASS. Sooner- the better, as we cannot print custom images with less than 72 hours to class time. All images must be greyscale, in psd or jpeg form and be atleast 225 dpi or greater (300 is ideal). Please check out the link for more nerdy info about images and instructions. As well all images should be emailed to images@workshopsf.org

Intro To Metalsmithing: Getting To Know Your Tools $68
/

In Getting To Know Your Tools, students will begin learning about and using hand tools traditionally used by metalsmiths. This is a great intro class to learn some simple basics with affordable tools. Students will learn these basic skills by making their own pendants from a sheet of sterling silver.  They will draw a simple, minimalist shape (diamond, triangle, circle, crescent, etc… NO STARS OR OTHER COMPLEX SHAPES) within a square inch of sterling silver.  Then students will saw out their shape using a handsaw, file down the rough edges using jewelry files, and sand the metal until it is smooth with fine sandpaper.  Students will finish off their own pendant piece by poking a hole in the metal and attaching a jump ring to their pendant so it will easily attach to a chain or leather cord.

Students will leave class with a finished pendant that they designed and constructed from base materials as well as a ‘zine titled ‘What We Learned In Class’, for future reference if they choose to continue their practice in metal smithing.  They will also take a foundational understanding of metal smithing, jewelry making, and its history home with them. 

LONG HAIRED STUDENTS: HAIR SHOULD BE WORN TIED BACK, SHORTER HAIR SHOULD BE TUCKED BEHIND THE EAR OR SECURED WITH BOBBY PINS.

Supplies needed: None

Teacher Bio: Heather is a jeweler and metal smith living and working out of Oakland, CA by way of Columbia, South Carolina.  Her love of jewelry was passed down to her from her mama and grandmothers.  The matriarchs in Heather’s family taught her about stones, their symbolism, and to have an appreciation for good design and craftsmanship.  Her inspiration comes from the American South, the artisans and crafts people of the region, and the creative people in her life.  She primarily works with sterling silver and stones that she is drawn to.  The website for her up and coming jewelry line, Ida Mae Rising, is: www.idamaerising.com.

Then our mistress of flowers, Lorena, will delve into a boot camp on succulents and how to care for them, water, light and growth. You ll then fill up and garden your cute lil vertical box with mosses, succulents and get it sturdy. Since succulents take time to root, you will need to care for this puppy on a flat surface for 2-3 weeks before you can hang it. So you ll have time to bond with your plants, talk to them and make sure they grow nicely. This class will have a variety of succulents but in order to keep the class affordable, we will supplying about 10-14 smaller plants, which will grow- so if you want instant gratification, please feel free to bring some larger succulents or some with you.
