About the instructor
Matt has been working as a bench jeweler and goldsmith for 15 years. His passion for metalsmithing began in a high school jewelry class and he’s never looked back! Matt specializes in custom jewelry that utilizes traditional fabrication, ornamental hand engraving, and advanced stone setting techniques that demonstrates the highest-quality craftsmanship.
Tools and equipment students should bring:
- Optivisor 5X
- Any and all hand tools that they enjoy using and would normally bring to a workshop
Materials kit* $80 (payable to instructor)
This gets each student a sharpening fixture to make a 105° graver so that they will leave the class with the tools to sharpen and make gravers.
- Silver bar earring blanks
- Graver blank
- Practice plates
- QC holder for graver
- optional purchase of graver sharpening fixture ($150)
Maximum number of students: 8. Students will be required to sign a waiver. Participants must be 18 or older.
- You may cancel up to 30 days prior to the start of the class and receive a full refund, less $25 processing. To cancel, send an email to email@example.com.
- Cancellations less than 30 days prior to the start date will not be refunded.
- In the event we have to cancel a class, you will be notified prior to the start date and will be issued a full refund.
- Registration is not transferrable. You may not sell your seat to another student.
- If a class has multiple sessions, and you miss one, there is no make up opportunity and the instructor will not catch you up at the next class session. You may not join the next scheduled class, as there’s a maximum number of students for every class and it’s not fair to the other students.
- Please plan extra time to find us if you’re coming to BoMA for the first time. If you are late to a class, the instructor will not catch you up. There’s a structured curriculum for every class and its not fair to other students to skip part of the curriculum to catch up a student who’s late.
- Snow. Colorado has frequent snowstorms in the winter and does a good job maintaining their roads in the snow. Snowy weather is a regular occurrence in our area and most people are accustomed to traveling under such conditions. Classes will be cancelled only in the case of inclement weather conditions that would make class attendance unsafe. If the National Weather Services issues a Winter Storm Warning for the time period of the class, we will cancel the class. https://www.weather.gov/bou/winterguide
