In Studio and Online Jewelry Making and Metalsmithing Classes

Danaca Design Studio is a small-scale metal-working and jewelry fabrication studio near the University of Washington in Seattle. Since 2003 we have offered a full schedule of classes in the art of decorative metal-work within our studio and now online! Our goal is to give every student the opportunity to be productive and creative at their comfort level, to hone skills and gain new abilities; to stretch, grow and experience achievement. 

Our NEW class scholarship begins accepting applications on September 1, 2022! Learn about the T.H. Artist Gap Scholarship HERE

"Classes at Danaca Design: Danaca Design is an incredible resource for metal smithing/jewelry making instruction. The owner, Dana Cassandra, has created a warm environment with a fantastic community of generous students…Dana is a supportive, curious, and motivating mentor. The artists she brings in to teach are world class masters in their fields. They share the wisdom and tricks of the trade that only come with years of experience. I highly recommend Danaca Design classes, for beginners and experts and everyone in between" -Kristina P.
