    About SC Brown:

    SC Brown has been crafting fine jewelry since 1975.  Most of his pieces reflect historical designs to some degree with some modern elements added in.  As a gemstone specialist his pieces often include rare gems that the average customer hasn’t seen before.  He has taught gold and silversmith at various schools and is a consultant to the industry.

    About the class:

    This class will introduce jewelry craft methods and tools to students in a classroom setting under direction from a professional jeweler with more than 40 years of experience.

    Through guided projects and skill building demonstrations, students will develop skills that will allow them to further pursue jewelry making as a hobby or career.

    Students will create one or two pieces during the class, depending on any previous experience they may have.  Each piece they make will involve various techniques designed to educate them in design and fabrication, and that they can use on their own, as they continue to develop new skills.  Jewelry 1 is a fabrication class where flat non ferrous metals are sawn, filed, hammered, shaped, soldered, and polished by hand.

    The first half of the class will cover some laser cutting basics, safety, and operational procedure. The second half is more hands-on in that you will be guided through cutting and engraving some fun shapes and designs out of wood to take home. Members who take this class will be certified to use the BOSS Laser unsupervised.

    Prerequisites: Students must be 18+. While it’s not mandatory, we strongly encourage students to have some experience with vector design (using software such as Corel Draw, Illustrator, or Inkscape).

    Walter is going to be helping students make their very own tote bag from Denim Scraps.  We have the denim supply here, but if you have a favorite pair of worn out jeans, please bring them in.  You will learn how to cut, measure and sew fabrics together using our Sewing Machines.  If you have any extra patches that you would like added please bring them in.  Great part of making bags from blue jeans  is there is always enough pockets.  This is a great class to learn a new skill or offer a great present to someone.  These bags are very heavy duty and are great for your farmers markets  trips, easy to wash and keep clean.

    Walter learned to sew at his grandmothers knee, and has since been making things from fabrics for the last 50 years.  He comes from a family of seamsters and has passed on the trade to his daughter Luka.

    Description of Class: Learn how to use a laser scanner to paint an organic image into your next 3d print. Great projects with the 3D scanner include: Creating exact replicas and copies of any object that the lasers can paint over on the surface. Scanning the human face or creating prosthetic limbs and apertures for the human body. This tool will build a strong bridge between the CAD design world and detailed natural objects. Your mind is the only limitation to what this tool can do for your next project! 

    What skills & tools will student learn: This course will go over the beginning of exposure to 3D animation, game engine creation, character design and the delicate operation of using this technology to construct an image into cyberspace from the real world. Students will operate the scanner and understand the limitations and the capabilities through the scan studio software.  The student will learn how the system works in depth and discover the modern day applications of reverse engineering and how it can provide a valuable tool for the next project! 



    What will student leave with? Operational knowledge and possibly an STL file of an object they brought to class! (wink wink)

    Ky Faubion


    Hailing from Southern Oregon, Ky moved to the Bay Area in 2007. Shortly after becoming a self employed dog walker and business owner in San Francisco, he found his first makerspace in 2011 while attending the Maker Faire. “Tech Shop” became his home for the next six years. After learning and teaching just about all the curriculum over that time due to missing instructors leaving the space, he became a true veteran by filling in for as many classes as he possibly could successfully training over 1,000 people of all ages and abilities. He then went onto other spaces to share his tribal knowledge at places like Tesla in Fremont and the PiShop program at Google HQ in Mountain View. He loves originality and spends a lot of his waking hours brainstorming about the next fun project; especially with his friends at 180 Studios.

    This 5 hour class is a great introduction the wonderful craft of welding and metal work. This class will help individuals learn to safely join two pieces of metal using MIG, one of the more popular welding techniques. The goal is to take the intimidation factor away and help individuals learn the basics of a valuable and exciting skillset. After a basic introduction to safety, the metal shop and its tools, and Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, as well as fabrication processes, students may create a small metal sculpture to take home.

    Students will learn the basics to safely use the metal shop. It is designed to take the intimidation factor out of metal work, while teaching the proper safety and respect for the art and craft of welding and metalworking. By the end you will know what PPE means and you will learn how to MIG Weld! In addition students will gain experience on other common metal shop tools, such as chop saws, band saw, angle grinders, bench grinders, and you will know how to use them all safely.

    What To Bring: Close-Toed leather or canvas shoes. Long pants of cotton bases material, i.e. Denim or canvas or 100% cotton. No leggings or shorts please.

    Class price includes a $10 materials fee.

    Martin Gilbertson: Graduated from Sonoma State with a BA in studio art with a focus on sculpture art and printmaking. He uses several mediums in his art including steel, wood, bronze, paper, glass, and is currently learning the Art of Neon in hopes to utilize that in his upcoming work. He joined the Studio 180 family recently and is excited to be able to work with, and collaborate with other to create fun and amazing art projects, and also pass along the “tricks of the trades” that he has learned and picked up along the way.

    This introductory software class is a first look at 3D modeling with computer assisted design (CAD) in Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software package. Free to use for hobbyists, Fusion 360 is the first step in bringing designs to life via 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC, or other manufacturing techniques.

    This class will run two consecutive days and cover foundational concepts and tools used in 3D design, as well as briefly expounding on a few more advanced tools and techniques. By the end of the second session each student will have a file finished and prepared for 3D printing. This class is excellent preparation for more advanced 180 Studios fabrication classes (3D printing, Shopbot CNC, laser cutting, etc.).
