Tucked in the Arizona desert, lies Viola Jo Studio. Founded by Lisa Dixon, this creative studio offers a haven for locals and visitors alike. From classes, to supplies, to custom jewelry gifts, Viola Jo Studio offers everything you need for your next creative project.
After growing-up in the Midwest and a rewarding but busy east coast career, I’ve relocated to Tubac and opened Viola Jo Studio. It is my studio, and a resource for others. I’ve made handmade jewelry for almost 20 years and painted occasionally. I also do Kumihimo braiding using a variety of different fibers. With the precious gift of extra time, I’ve explored many jewelry and textile techniques including polymer and metal clay, wire wrapping, cold connections, enameling, resin, concrete, metal smithing, glass blowing, CAD, fabric surface design, screen printing, shibori, embroidery, weaving, paper sculpting, felting, and loom knitting. I like to explore and invite others to join!
Open-studio format class, so you can join-in anytime. Class fee is $30, and registration is required. Please email Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Kathy provides supplies for the first class.
Drop-in anytime between 2-5, Kathy will help you design and make jewelry with beads. Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are covered. Class is free – just pay for the beads and supplies used.
