Imprint your own personality into your daily wear!
This is the easiest way to add your style and tell your story with your silver jewellery.
Telling your story is easy with our wide selection of hand-punches and characters. Add a texture or polish of your choice to finish up any project. In this style of workshop students learn now to use various types of hammers, buffing techniques and stamping tools to give your personal piece of metal art it’s own sparkle.
Use our ready-to-go Silver & Copper options as a blank canvas to test your creative skills making a design all of your own, or keep it simple with initials, dates, and names. Either way this workshop is just the beginning of what’s possible at the Den. A perfect prerequisite to our full workshop experiences where we’ll start your project from scratch.
About the Den:
Kristin Calkins is the Owner & Master Goldsmith @TheDenToronto
How did the Den turn from community studio for students to Toronto’s most popular goldsmith learning experience? Quite organically in fact. People were so drawn to the energy in the space that friends and clients started hanging out to watch and learn while their projects were coming to life in the hands of enthusiastic young jewellers.
The Light Bulb: Master Goldsmith and Entrepreneur Kristin Calkins started the Den as an affordable and community focused studio for jewelers without limitations to their creative endeavors. Mostly students and learn-it-all’s, there was a huge sharing of education to the point where people started asking: “Can I do that?” A light bulb went off. “Yes, you can!”
New Generation: Now 6 years later we are sharing our passion and education every week in our hands-on workshops and grown from a one woman team to a team of 9; all here to expand Toronto’s creative scene and keep people trying new things! Join our learn-it-all community and keep the fire lite, literally.
