Welcome to the Northeast chapter of the Florida Society of Goldsmiths. Visit our 1200 sq.ft. beautifully-equipped metal studio, located in the heart of historic DeLand. We offer classes for students of all levels, from beginner to advanced. Members enjoy discounted classes, access to open studio days, and a friendly community atmosphere.

Members are invited to come & work on their own projects for the nominal charge of $5 per session. Use any of the studio’s equipment – rolling mills, kilns, hydraulic presses, torches etc. – as long as you are versed in proper use and safety. Come and work while enjoying the company of other members in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Even if you’re not an experienced teacher, you still have great information, skills and experience to share with other members. We’d sure appreciate it — and best of all, you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped or inspired another member.
We’re always interested in talking about class proposals with volunteers and paid instructors. You don’t have to be a member of FSG to volunteer or to be hired. If you have a proposal for a class, let’s discuss how to make it happen. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities to our members, and our goal is to do exactly that.
Keep in mind that there are no paid positions on our Chapter Board. We are all volunteers– arranging classes, answering your email and phone calls, keeping the books, cleaning the studio, maintaining the website, etc. We do it because we believe in the mission — and it’s fun to work together. Nothing great was ever accomplished without enthusiasm — Share your enthusiasm with us!
