Sparks (young adults 16-18 years old)

Igniting Your Curiosity by Creating Your Own Sterling Silver Jewelry!

Introduction to Silversmithing: an experience in forging metal with fire, creativity, and curiosity

Sparks is a program for young adults, 16 to 18 years old, who want to make silver jewelry for themselves or as gifts while exploring their creativity, learning skills that can help them craft a career path in the arts, or just need something fun and positive to direct energy towards. Many young adults are not college bound and need choices tailored to the arts for self esteem and success. 

Do you need assistance in paying for classes? If so, we have an opportunity for you. Colorado High Grade Silver Studios has partnered with Montrose County Colorado Works Program which is providing grant funding to cover the entire tuition ($360) and fees ($80) for Level One: Introduction to Silversmithing. Contact us for more information and to apply.

Our classes offer instruction for new beginners and continuing students in classical techniques of silversmithing and jewelry design. All 6-week sessions are 1 day per week for 3 hours. The cost is $360 for the entire session (18+ hours of instruction) plus material fees (ranges from $80-$120 depending on the material you choose) for the session.

Our classes build on themselves. The skills introduced each week are reinforced and built upon in following weeks and these are then built upon in the following 6-week sessions. A solid foundation of soldering, sawing, forging, and stone setting skills are the beginning of silversmithing. These traditional techniques are where our 6-week class sessions begin their focus. Each class is limited in size to 5 students to ensure student success but private lessons are available too. This is an ancient art that we want to see carried on, please let us know if you have any questions, are ready to try this incredible craft, or would like a tour of our studio.
