Open-Studio Bench Rentals

Stairway Studio open studio bench rentals are for jewellers able to work independently that have completed our Intro to Silversmithing Course or equivalent training. Those wishing to use the studio must be able to work safely and self-sufficiently with all the different tools and equipment available, as we are unable to provide consistent assistance or supervision. During the first fifteen minutes of your first rental time, you will be required to complete a Safety and Equipment Orientation with the Studio Technician in order to use the studio.

You must provide all your own consumables, or purchase from us (drill bits, saw blades, flex-shaft attachments, sandpaper, metal etc.). We have our open-studio etiquette consumable kits now available for purchase.

If you can, we recommend you bring your own hand tools, but ensure they are labelled. We have lockers available for use. If you don't have your own hand tools, you can rent our toolboxes for an extra $5/hr. 

We run on a first-come first serve basis, though we have twelve benches available for use. 

Our NEW Drop-In Hours are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 12-5:30pm and Wednesday & Friday 12-8:30pm

No need to book online.
Drop in for as short or long a time as you'd like.
$10/ hour - Optional:
