3-DAY COURSE, Monday to Wednesday

Embark on a journey of self-directed exploration and mastery in our advanced jewelry course, led by Mackenzie Russell, in our fully equipped studio. This unique opportunity allows participants to delve into their passions and safely bring their creative visions to life.

Under Mackenzie’s guidance, participants will have the freedom to pursue self-selected projects tailored to their interests and skill levels. Whether it’s intricate metalwork, experimental designs, or pushing the boundaries of traditional techniques, this course empowers you to express your creativity in the realm of jewelry making.

Prior knowledge of basic jewelry design and essential benchwork techniques such as soldering, sawing, piercing, filing, sanding, and polishing is required. It’s recommended that participants have previously taken a jewelry course with Honeybee and have experience working in our studio.

If you’re unsure whether your ideas or abilities align with the course, feel free to reach out to the instructor for guidance prior to enrolling. Join us for an enriching journey of artistic exploration and skill refinement, where your creativity knows no bounds.

An armchair philosopher and aspiring alchemist, Mackenzie is inspired by liberal pursuits and the possibility of interpreting conceptual ideas into a visual piece of art.
