  • Wood Burn a Charcuterie Board

    Anonymous review on 1/24/2024
    This was GREAT! Wasn't sure how this would work as a virtual class but it was terrific. Instructions were clear, materials easy to use, the 'pinning' feature on Zoom allowed us to see detailed demonstration better than if in-person, and a group of us were able to take this class together in spite of being apart.

  • Couples Ring Making Workshop

    Reviewed by Danaya C. on 6/28/2022
    The Couples Ring Making Workshop was a great experience. We have a lot of fun making our matching rings, very romantic. We learn a lot about how rings are made, and also a little history of Alexandria and the shop. The class is at a beginner level, so you don't have to have experience in making jewelry before. Some wine was served during class. You can also buy some of their unique jewelry, and take other classes if you are interested in making jewelry (not just rings). There are also many unique shops for you to look around in the area. A coffee place nearby was great and very cozy.

    Fantastic course! Dan is a very knowledgeable and approachable instructor who brings a lot of passion for his craft to the classroom. Highly recommend.
  • Metals I

    Anonymous review on 11/2/2020
    We had a really small class just 4 of us. Dan gives great instruction - he demos each part of the process and then will provide additional assistance through each step of making your pieces. The studio is well equipped and they take COVID seriously with dividers between workstations and requiring masks and gloves (both provided) to all who enter. I’m already signed up for Metals 2!

The benches used are well appointed with quality tools and equipment making it easy to learn the right way to do things.
