The Metals/Jewelry studio complex consists of ten rooms. The main bench room is adjacent to a machine room and a smithing studio. The machine room contains an area for welding (both MIG and acetylne), large machinery for cutting, grinding, and drilling and a sandblaster. The smithing studio has an extensive selection of stakes and hammers as well as a draw bench, milling machine, and machinist’s and watchmaker’s lathes.
There are separate rooms for annealing and acid handling, polishing, enameling and small-tool storage. The casting studio contains equipment for steam de-waxing, vacuum investing, burn-out kilns, and both vacuum and centrifugal casting. There is a separate studio for advanced level students who are assigned bench space. The graduate studios are discreet studio spaces adjacent to the main facility.
