Tool Training & Testing: Jewelry Studio 2018

Event Time: This is a one-session class taking place on one Monday evening 6 - 9pm. Choose your date from the drop-down menu (sessions run around once a month).   Description: Tool Training is the fastest way to start working independently in the Artisan's Asylum Jewelry Shop and is ideal for those with any amount of prior jewelry experience, whether you're a seasoned metalsmith or an occasional hobbyist. In one 3 hour session, students will get up to speed on our particular shop procedures and layout as well as safety and basic use of the air-acetylene torches, forming tools, flex shafts, and the polishing machine. For those who have more experience, other tools may be covered as time allows. Individual Tool Testing will follow at least one week after training by making an appointment at the training session, and is necessary before a member is allowed to work independently in the shop. This class does not cover fabrication skills such as soldering, sawing, etc. Those who are completely new to jewelry or metalsmithing are advised to take the multi-week Jewelry 101 class or a day-long Jewelry Shop Orientation. For other classes and trainings available in the jewelry studio at Artisan's Asylum, check out http://artisansasylum.com/site/current-classes/#jewelry. Prerequisites: Because this class does not cover fabrication skills, it is ideal for those with any amount of previous jewelry or metalsmithing experience, whether through a class, job, or self-teaching. Students must be at least 18 years old. Materials Provided: All necessary materials will be provided, and are included in the cost of registration. What to Bring: Close-toed shoes, hair tie-backs, notebook. Instructor Biography: Alicia O’Dell has been making jewelry for 15 years, learning how to make her first pair of earrings as a teenager.

About Somerville, MA
Somerville Massachusetts is located just northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. The easy access to Boston and Cambridge by public transportation and it's great parks and neighborhoods, makes Somerville a perfect choice to settle down and call home. Search local Somerville homes for sale and join the local community.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!
