Ninety Twenty Workshop is a subset of Ninety Twenty Studios, a place in NE Portland, OR where craft can succeed through classes, the sharing of information with Studio members and the students who take classes. The Workshop was established in 2019, because of the closure of Oregon College of Art and Craft, a BFA and MFA degree granting institution in Portland, where Christine Clark was a professor and Head of the Metals Department for over 35 years. In our grief and loss of one of the most notable and important craft educational institutions in the country, Christine and Mary Clark put their efforts toward creating Ninety Twenty Workshop. Continuing the advancement of the craft tradition of jewelry and metalsmithing, our priorities lie in this important pursuit of offering classes to anyone who wants to get their hands dirty and create one-of-a-kind jewelry and metal art that is unique, craft-based informed, and distinctive in each person’s own language. Christine’s partner, Mary Clark, is a maker, designer, woodworker, and owner of Incidental Design and Fabrication. We both welcome you to our maker space.

Ninety Twenty Workshop offers craft education through jewelry making and metalsmithing, to a diverse range of students at many skill levels. Learning through hands-on making, students are provided with tools and materials, varied subject matter, and highly skilled instruction for personal and professional growth and in the field.
