Jewelry, Metal and Art Classes
Michele Judge is the leading private Jewelry and metalwork instructor in the Philadelphia area, offering both private instruction and small group classes. Participants work alongside Michele in her studio at the Cedar Works, a studio space for artists in West Philadelphia.
For those interested in developing and advancing jewelry and metal working skills, classes are organized in a clear progression that will allow the student to advance as they acquire skills, all the while developing their own custom jewelry and metal pieces.
If you are interested in creating a custom piece of jewelry in partnership with the artist, Michele offers jewelry making experiences where you develop a concept together and co-create the piece in the studio over the course of an entire session. Any and all skill levels welcome! This is the ideal opportunity for couples wanting to craft their personalized wedding rings together or birthday / anniversary / special event for 1-2 people.
All classes are scheduled by the participant to fit their schedule. Classes can be booked online with an interactive calendar scheduler.
Standard private classes are $125 per 2.5 hour block. Some classes are a series of two or three 2.5 hour blocks. Rates are for one person. Each additional student (up to 3 total), is $50 per class.
Classes are held in historic West Philadelphia. Experience working in a professional art studio, The Cedar Works

This year Michele Judge will be hosting a group class that will discuss chosen topics in the art and craft world. Participants can bring in things they made or images of work they are interested in for group discussion. These discussions will be aimed at improving the work of the individual as well as inspiring new ideas and insights for everyone in the group. Relevant work by past and present practicing artists, world renowned and otherwise, will be presented and discussed in the group. Understanding the functions, concepts and history within particular aspects in art as a whole, as well as ones own work, helps to guide and strengthen the path and abilities of the artist.
