“Workshop is the ultimate educational and networking event for bench jewelers,” says Tammy Lail, vice president of tools and metals. “This event brings hundreds of bench jewelers together in one place, to learn from each other, as well as industry pros.”

The two-day event will host a variety of Stuller and industry experts presenting hands-on demos, and in-depth training and classes.
