Metalworks SF and Macchiarini Design
Over fifty years of metal work experience brought into intimate class settings for beginners and experienced Jewelry makers.
We are pleased to invite the public of San Francisco to experience the unique method of bench studio jewelry that we practice at Macchiarini Design! MetalworksSF is our new school, and we are now offering classes right here in our studio! This is a wonderful place to experience the joy of hand fabrication, casting, and metalwork. We encourage a hands on, somatic approach to Jewelry making, which echoes a not so distant past of traditional craft. We are interested in creating crafts people who are familiar with the activity and process of the bench Jeweler. We do not have a matriculation process, or certificate, but by being in this space, students will gain access to a tradition of creating wearable art, and the opportunity to stretch artistic boundaries of Jewelry craft.
Founded in 1948, Macchiarini Creative Design the oldest ongoing metal arts design house, production studio, and gallery in the United States.
