This is an invitation for all in the Southern California area.
It’s our pleasure to invite you to the opening of a new and exciting
metalsmithing studio, Whaley Studios, owned by Jay Whaley, on
Saturday, May 3rd, 2008 from 4-8 pm. Jay’s studio is conveniently
located in the lively Hillcrest area of San Diego at 3858 5th Ave.,
Suite A (between Robinson and University).
Whaley Studios will now be available for both private classes and
specialty workshops taught by both Jay and other industry experts.
Please come to the studio opening to view the wonderful working
environment, watch demonstrations, network and provide input on
potential workshops you’d like to see put in motion! Refreshments
will also be served.
Jay Whaley has been a bench jeweler and metalsmithing instructor for
over 30 years in Arizona, Hawaii and California. As many of you
know, Jay is a master craftsman and has managed the jewelry/metals
program at the UCSD Craft Center for the past 22 years.
With the opening of his new studio, Jay offers San Diego and SoCal
metalsmiths the much needed opportunity to work, learn and enhance
our metalsmithing skills in a local environment. Join us May 3rd and
help launch this exciting new endeavor!
This is an opportunity to meet Jay Whaley. The studio is lovely, and
will host many wonderful Workshops.
