Come get inspired and jump-start the habit of regularly practicing your jewelry making!

Weekday mornings, May 7 - June 11, you will receive an email with a studio warm-up exercise prompt - a "Studio Spark" (see examples of Sparks and results in photos). These Sparks are designed to give you inspiration for a quick warm-up, a bit of exercise for your makery muscles to get you started in your studio each morning. Friday Sparks are design challenges, that will give you a little something extra to ruminate on over the weekend. Practicing various skills and techniques and flexing your design muscles, without a specific end product in mind, is a great way to build confidence in your skills. Students are encouraged to get to their benches and play!

Live WELCOME check-in, Sunday, May 72:00 - 4:00 PT!  Come meet the others in the group and get a quick how-to tour of Padlet.com. We'll be using a Padlet virtual bulletin board to post pictures of our Sparks explorations throughout each week. No need to have your own Padlet account! You'll receive a link to the Studio Sparks Padlet board in your first email, and you can post directly to the board without having to sign up for anything ;).

Live WEEKLY Zoom check-ins, Sunday afternoons, (2 - 4 pm PT) will give you a chance to share challenges, triumphs, and a-ha moments, and have a touchstone for accountability that will keep you focused and moving forward.

Grab a cup of coffee and get to your bench!
