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!

Join us at Stonybrook Fine Arts for our Holiday Sale and Open House! On December 10th from 3-7pm come and check out the studio and local artists’ work. Visitors can carve their own tile design in a sand mold, or scratch block, and we will cast it in aluminum shortly after. Creating your own aluminum tile for yourself or as a gift is $15, but watching us pour the molten metal in our lot is free! Refreshments will be inside along with artwork for sale. This holiday season, support your local artists while buying gifts for friends and loved ones!
The winter session begins January 6th, 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!
EXHIBITS and INSTALLATIONS
“The Discarded” is a welded steel barrel sculpture by Morris Norvin depicting a mother and cub polar bear standing on a dissolving glacier. “Piscator II” is another welded sculpture by Norvin and was fabricated using recycled barrel hoops. The barrel hoops and the steel barrels, originally containing maple syrup, were donated to Stonybrook by The Sam Adams Brewery. Both are currently on display at Stonybrook Fine Arts.
