OStudioworks is a unique destination for art workshops taught by Nicole Ohayon and both established and emerging artists as guest instructors who have achieved significant recognition in their fields.

Whether discovering a brand new passion, refining a talent or expanding your creative repertoire, this cozy studio is a place that fosters creativity, encourages self-expression and is sensitive to the needs of the individual and to the dynamics of a group. It is a place to collaborate, comfortably stretch the boundaries of your imagination and create magnificent works! Our workshops range from silversmithing, fold forming, jewelry making, metal etching, diy wedding bands, cold connections, hydraulic press forming, metal embossing and many other art forms.

Nicole has been a part of L.A.’s ‘The Brewery’ arts community since 2003 and helped herself to the hands-on learning available in one of the largest artist colonies.

artist’s statement

at the core of work & life

is experimentation

…experimentation w/ matter & spirit, w/ material & self

…where the alchemist would take matter;

the alchemist must also go,

from prima materia to philosopher’s stone,

from lead to gold,

from here to wisdom

…fire, water, air, acid;

all the elements transform

…then; imprint the self;

w/ markers, nail polish,

w/ resistance

…allow to dissolve,

allow chance, allow risk

…then; at the right time,

the right temperature.

that perfect point of transformation…

…all processes are unique.

…each a personal & archetypal experience.

…each piece is unique,

capturing the growth of self experimentation.
