Classes at The Adorned Studios
Each month, our knowledgeable resident instructors will teach a make and take style class we have personally developed to instruct a variety of techniques. All of our classes are taught in house at The Adorned Studios and generally run an hour or two, typically taking place on week day evenings. Our classes are intimate and friendly, and designed to be both fun and challenging at every skill level! Our goal, is for our students to feel creatively empowered and at ease--there are no mistakes in metal!
Classes at The Adorned are offered for ages 15+ through our friends at The Rochester Brainery. Classes are held at our classroom space located in the South Wedge neighborhood of Rochester, NY (739 S.Clinton Ave, directly next to Mccains Meats). Please wear comfortable clothing you don't mind getting a little dirty. Depending on the nature of the class, this is always a possibility!

All of the classes viewable below are offered at different times throughout the year through the Rochester Brainery or by booking a private group session (4-8 students). Please inquire for more info or to request a class for our upcoming schedule!
THE HEALING CONNECTION
These two small group sessions are a fundraising event for The Healing Connection, a non-profit located in the City of Rochester, providing hope and treatment to adolescents and adults seeking recovery from an eating disorder. Create & Donate classes hope to provide some information and education of The Healing Connection, while providing an opportunity to connect through creativity. $25 of each enrollment will serve as a donation to the organization. Here at The Adorned Studios, we are truly honored to be introducing this program with our friends at The Healing Connection.
In this special group session, students will be creating a layered, hand stamped necklace using a design and metal of their choosing. We will learn about different textures that can be added to metal, and go over stamping techniques before practicing and applying what we've learned to create a personalized, one of a kind necklace! Class runs approx 1 1/2 hours. Students ages 13+ welcome!
