Private Lessons
Katie Poterala Jewelry Studio
Greenville, SC

Private lessons are a perfect solution for many students who prefer to have uninhibited one-on-one attention, or who have very specific technique focuses that aren't met by other group courses.  Many students, particularly beginners, find that they learn and accomplish more, faster, with one-on-one instruction. 

Topics are chosen on a student by student basis, based on the interests and needs of the individual.  Topics range from beginning to advanced, and some sample topics include:

  • Enameling
  • Cold Connections
  • Sawing/Filing/Sanding/Finishing
  • Soldering
  • Hollow Construction
  • Chain Fabrication
  • Earrings
  • Stone Setting
  • Casting + Mold Making
  • Findings/Hinges/Clasps
  • Patinas
  • Powdercoating
  • Surface Textures/treatments
  • Etc.

Please email or call Katie for more information or to schedule your first lesson!

...same quality of teaching as in the group class, but all the instructions are directed just to you and fit your individual needs. You’ll accomplish so much more work as you’re not waiting for others and there are no distractions. The instructor stays with you until you have completed your piece. The quiet is a nice benefit.
