Hi, I just would like to know, how early is too early to start
your own workshop as a student? I just did a 1 year and half
course, but I dont know if that is enough?
I dunno…I only ever took a six week two hour jewelry night class
at a community college…and I think I didn’t attend all of the
classes…when I started my own workshop. That was fifteen years
ago…lol…Hope I have picked up something more than that since
then. You have a lot more edjumacation than I ever did.
Personally, I have always thought that education is a wonderful,
helpful, important thing, I do have a BA in
design…ceramics…but no jewelry,…so I ain’t totally
ign’rent, but like having the best tools, education will not make you
a great or even a good jeweler or artist, that part is up to your
talent and your drive. You can have many years of schooling, and
still suck. Those of us who cite our “MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE”…mea
culpa sometimes…hey…we could have been doing it wrong for
Do you want to open a workshop?
So open a workshop.
