At Charmtree Jewelry Studio, our passion for metalsmithing is is equal to our love of Bay l. We offer a unique opportunity for students to learn the art of metalsmithing and take home a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. Our classes are tailored to all skill levels, allowing for a great learning experience while also having fun. Not only do we teach valuable skills, but we also offer a chance for students to relax on Kent Island, located on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Take a class and then unwind at one of our beaches, walking trails, and waterfront restaurants - experiencing all that the island life has to offer.
How It Works:

Workshops are 3-4-hours with 1/2 lunch break. Depending on your design, you will leave with your finished pieces (items that require kiln-firing, will be delivered to the rental the following morning). After class you will check-in to your rental and will be greeted with a delicious charcuterie grazing board accompanied by local wines.
