As of today, we have 4 emerging artists and two teachers confirmed for our Merry Maker's Market on Friday and we're waiting to hear back from several more. This is a great chance to enjoy a fun evening while connecting with local silversmiths and finding great deals on handmade gifts. Here's a sneak peek at a few of the offerings...

On December 6th you'll find our village stalls both inside and out festooned with bright holly, sparkling lights, fragrant pine boughs and a full complement of cheery makers proffering their sparkling silver, gold, brass and bejeweled wares. Take in the festively crisp night air (perhaps, I mean it is San Diego) of Liberty Station's outdoor European-style Christmas market where we'll have a stall or step lightly to the second floor of Barracks 15 to revel in medieval holiday charm as you browse our two small shops. Find the perfect holiday gift for that special baker, butcher or cobbler in your life or pick out a one-of-a-kind treasure for yourself. First Friday is Liberty Station's monthly open studio event so in addition to visiting us you can explore the Liberty Public Market, visit nearby shops and studios and catch live entertainment - all with easy parking. Bring a friend or make one here, either way it will be an evening of magical wintry delights - we hope you'll join us! Get details and directions.

February 8 & 9th, 2020 - 2 day intensive
Learn the traditional Japanese method of patterning mokume-gane; using a chisel to carve into the surface of blank mokume-gane to create rivers of pattern. After hammering the sheet back to flat, the unique patterns are locked into the metal forever. Participants will create patterned sheets the first day, then have the option of creating a finished pendant the second day, and/or creating their own mokume gane chisel.
