Granulation Demystified (Summer Intensive)
Reviewed by Anonymous on 9/5/2016
The individualized teaching was superb (thank you, Jeanette) and the environment was wonderfully supportive. You work at your own pace. You learn by doing and by repetition when watching other students undertaking similar processes. It was truly intensive and I learned so much. Thank you again!
Granulation Demystified (Summer Intensive)
Reviewed by Chris on 8/26/2016
JAI is really a jewel in NYC. Jeanette, who is the chief instructor and proprietor, has found her vocation ( aside from being an unbelievably talented goldsmith) in teaching and mentoring students, with an endless supply of patience and encouragement. She never loses her cool, no matter how many times she has to repeat herself; she is always funny and upbeat, and she understands that students progress at their own pace. Also, she has filled her staff with jewelers/instructors who are like in spirit-- patient and clear. All her teachers will always stop and answer your question; everyone is very kind. The studio has a nice mix of professional jewelers who sell their work and students learning the craft. Jeanette seems to attract people who are really nice, friendly people and helpful as well. It is a very supportive space, which is important for beginning students who need to be around accomplished jewelers but dont want to feel intimidated. The studio is extremely well-equiped, and well maintained, and feels spacious. Melissa, who is the receptionist and office administrator as well as a professonal jeweler, is unbelievalby helpful with anything you need to know. Both Savannah and Valerie ( other instructors I have had ) are top notch. I would give JAI 10 stars if I could. Great place; you cannot go wrong here.
