One hour lunch break ~ Lunch included

$375.00

In this three day workshop I’ll be covering the basics of sterling silver fabrication – focus on soldering. This is a come as you are workshop ~ meaning no matter your level of experience you will learn the basic skills needed to build or construct a piece of jewelry. Given the fact that my workshops are limited to 5 students each person receives the individual attention to the extent they need to be successful. The suggested project is a ring with either a cabochon cut stone (dome cut) or piece of sea glass, abalone shell, or other found pebble. Students can bring their own precious found object or I will have a few choices available. Some experience with hand tools is a plus but not required. For those with more experience I encouraged you to bring designs for that fabrication piece you’ve wanted to make but have been reluctant to try on your own. I will help you plot out the order of construction and plan the most efficient way to realize your piece. And be at your side for the challenging soldering process. 

Payment is due upon registration. Email me at outlawstudio@mcn.org for more information or to sign up.

Looking forward to seeing you in the studio!

Students are encouraged to bring their design of a piece or a series of pieces that they want to construct in copper, silver or gold. Together we will lay out the various steps and plan the most efficient way to build your design. If you do not have a particular piece already in mind we will come up with a project that will challenge your soldering skills and exercise your your technical layout abilities. 

Choice of metal is yours and appropriate solders will be available for purchase. In preparation for this workshop I will have one on one consultations with each student to be sure you are prepared to accomplish you’re individual goals.

Friday and Saturday ~ 10:00 – 4:30 ~ $250.00 … Lunch included!

This two day workshop will cover the basic skills needed to begin working in metal – copper and/or silver – sawing, filling, sanding and finishing/polishing, cold connections and introduction to soldering. We will start with an over view of the various ways to work with, and the properties of, precious metals. I have titled this beginning Metal Smithing and not beginning  jewelry making as jewelry is a very big word that can represent a wide variety of materials and techniques. That being said I am a jeweler and the skills taught in this workshop are the foundation of precious metal jewelry making! 

All tools and copper sheet will be available in class. Students are encouraged to bring any tools and materials they have and would like to use. I will have sterling silver stock in a number of forms available for purchase. At the end of class we will look at various tool and material suppliers and go over how to identify your needs and how to order things efficiently. We can also place a group order and will receive applicable discounts.

Please email at me at outlawstudio@mcn.org  to register for the class.
Enrollment limited to 5 students

Looking forward to seeing you in the studio!
