Regular Workshop


This six week class is open to anyone who is interested in the basics of jewelry making and metalsmithing. Class will continue where Part 1 left off, though Part 1 is not required. The instructor will review basic skills such as sawing and soldering, which will help students improve their skill set and help them find more efficient ways to work. Then we will move on to more complex soldering techniques, surface embellishment and patterning and how to make a simple stone setting. The instructor will also cover how to plan and layout a design so that the making of the piece becomes much easier. Topics covered will include:

- Basic tools needed for jewelry and metalsmithing work
- Sawing/filing sheet metal
- Soldering
- Surface embellishment
- Basic stone setting


Students will work with copper and brass. Those wishing to work with sterling silver may bring their own.
