Jewelry Studio at the Hop

The Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio

A well-equipped jewelry and metalsmithing makerspace.

The Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio is part of the Student Workshops, an innovative, co-curricular Hop program that has been in existence for close to 60 years. Absolutely no previous experience is necessary. The studio has a staff of both professional and specially trained student instructors to help participants make their objects. Because the program is voluntary and ungraded, creativity is nurtured in a very pure way. 

The Student Workshops are open to Dartmouth students, and all experience levels are welcome.

Open Studio Hours

Monday, Tuesday & Friday: 1–5 pm
Wednesday & Thursday: 1–8 pm

The Jewelry Studio opens for Summer term on Thursday, June 20 at 1 pm
