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.

Enrollment limited to 5 students.
Looking forward to seeing you in the studio!
