Wellness for Makers: Movement Series for Jewelers

Working at the bench can be taxing on the body. The way you move in your studio impacts how you feel. This workshop series is designed to teach you how to understand your common movements in the jewelry studio. Each session will be a mix of lecture and physical movements that target a specific area of the body and jewelry making practice. By the end of the course you will be ready to transform your studio practice.
