Our shop is currently closed at the Tett Centre and will remain so until a vaccine is available or until Covid 19 restrictions are eased. The Tett building is open, limited hours, 9-1pm each day. We are unable to open at this time as the 6 foot distancing is a problem in our studio as is the need to clean and sanitize all surfaces touched and all tools used. As we are not a business that needs to open, we have elected to remain closed. Sorry for this, but the health and safety of our instructors and members and the public is our foremost concern at this time.
All club activities are discontinued at this time as well. Gem Storm for 2020 has been cancelled as has our Metal Rocks show
Our shop is now back at full Scheduling. For full details, please check the calendar on this website Our current open ship times are Sunday’s from 1 - 4pm, Tuesday’s from 10:15 - 12, 4 - 8:30pm, Wednesday’s from 10 - 1pm and 6:30 - 8:30pm, We have added a “Beyond the Basics” and a “Beginners 102” course to our current beginner’s silversmithing courses. These new courses take silversmithing skills to the next level and should be very popular.

Beginning in the Spring, we will as well be offering bead courses, wire wrapping courses and a bead club for those enthusiasts.
