Stonybrook Fine Arts is a creative space located at 24 Porter Street in Jamaica Plain MA. We have experienced and talented instructors who teach our teen and adult classes in welding, bronze casting, jewelry, small metal casting, mold making, live figure sculpting and stone carving. We also host a VERY unique workshop: “Make Your Own Wedding Rings” – as well as other custom workshops, which include interactive school tours, team building and birthday parties. Our studio is available for shop time to artists, makers and craft persons and we gladly accept commissions!

We are proud participants of this year’s Boston Mini Maker Faire hosted at Boston Children’s Musuem.
“Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of creative doers – tech enthusiasts, designers, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, crafters, students, commercial exhibitors, and more. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they create with their bare hands and bold minds, and to share how they do it, why they do it, and what they learn.” (x)
This Sunday, September 17th, from 10am-5pm come to make all kinds of thinngs, including your own cast aluminum artwork! We’re bringing our own furnace plus resin-bonded sand blocks for any-age maker to carve into and make their own design. Then, our dedicated team of metal casters will pour molten aluminum into the sand molds. All the pieces will be ready to take home that day!
The fall session begins October 3rd, but Workshops occur every other weekend. We offer Welding, Jewelry, Foundry, Figure Sculpture, Stone Carving and Mold Making. If no scheduled dates work, please contact us to set up a custom group workshop or a 1 to 1 lesson.
We were excited to participate with the Peabody Essex Museum Rodin Exhibit to demonstrate the process of casting bronze using sand molds and then welding the pieces back together to create a finished form. This was a really fun project!
