Studio Bench Mates

Meltdown Studio houses ten permanent bench set-ups available to artists who have established a firm understanding of techniques and studio policy and want to continue to create.

Bench mates have 24-hour access to the studio, their own jeweler’s bench, Foredom Flexible Shaft System, soldering stations and buffing stations (provided by the studio) and the opportunity to store their personal tools and materials at the studio. They have access to all of Meltdown Studio’s tools and equipment, as well as their own locking private spaces in which to create. As members of the studio, they are notified of events and opportunities, and enjoy the support of the studio and their fellow artists.

$135/month (bench rental requires a 3 month minimum commitment)  *Subject to availability.

  1. Hello, I am writing to inquire about availability for Studio Bench Mate. I am a professional jeweler who just relocated to Albuquerque.
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Kelly! Welcome to Albuquerque! All benches are currently occupied, but if you’d like to come to the studio and take a look, I’d love to show you around! We also have open studio and studio access options if you’re interested. Best, Lauren
