Hot Shop

123 S Ridge St
Metalsmithing, glasswork, and welding

One of the most popular studios in the Breckenridge Arts District, the Hot Shop accommodates “hot arts” such as silversmithing, welding and lampworking—the art of working glass rods behind a torch for small projects like marbles and beads. A new facility designed to be harmonious with the historic structures on campus, the Hot Shop takes up a small footprint, similar to other mining era buildings. Inside, the contemporary space is outfitted with hanging electrical outlets and state-of-the-art ventilation and lighting systems. There are special benches and an acetylene tank for silversmithing, an oxy-propane system and kiln for lampworking, and a hood for future glass-blowing. Local art instructors keep the studio hopping with a robust schedule of demonstrations and hands-on workshops, and visiting artists light it up on special occasions.
