Class is ALWAYS in at Rio Grande! Whether you take one of our jewelry making classes, watch a video, make a project, or walk a trade show, you're always in good company with fellow jewelers who want to add more skills to their toolboxes.
Throughout the year, Rio Grande offers jewelry-making classes where you can ask “What if?”, and join fellow students in classrooms filled with curiosity, drive and artistry. Classes are held right here in our Albuquerque, New Mexico facility, covering everything from PMC® to metal forming, soldering to stone-setting. Every student works at a jeweler’s bench, rolls up their sleeves and gets hands-on experience using the materials, tools and equipment provided for the class. Our instructors are professional jewelers, metalsmiths, gemologists, stone setters and designers. Their dedication to this rewarding and invigorating art form is manifest in every class they teach.
And with the Rio Rewards PMC Certification program, you can earn your PMC certification and enjoy the benefits of our special purchasing program. At Rio, any time is a great time to learn!
Whether you're new to making jewelry or an old pro taking a jewelry making class to add a trick to the toolbox, Rio Grande is your source for learning.
