The jewelry industry is looking to hire jewelers with advanced stone setting skills. In this condensed, practical course, and you'll learn alongside full-time jewelry making students at NBSS. You can expect lots of individual attention, and you'll be able to work at your own pace.
The NBSS community is an extremely talented one, and the public approach our alumni, students, and faculty for custom commissions. Every once in awhile, something truly unique will come along, and last year our Cabinet & Furniture Making program was approached with just such a project.
We are proud to announce that we have a new Carpentry instructor joining the program this September, Geoffrey Shaw. Geof is a 1994 graduate of the Preservation Carpentry program, and comes with a wealth of building, construction, and teaching experience. Welcome Geof!
Hopefully, our moving to Boston Part 1 has helped you feel a little more prepared for your move. Now, we want to focus on the fun part – exploring your new neighborhood!

In the meantime, here are some of ours.
