WEEKEND ONE (2-days): June 22 – 23, 2019 Classes run 9 am– 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Working with silver, copper and brass, students will be inspired to continue working even further with metal. Students will complete two pieces of finished jewelry with mixed metal being worked together to complement each other. Numerous techniques will be taught, starting with the basics of piercing, sawing, sanding, texturing and riveting. Polishing techniques and multiple riveting techniques will be taught as well as working with the roller printer for unusual textures. Patinas can be applied and students will learn the basic elements of design. This course is excellent for beginner students who have always wanted to try metal, they will jump right in and learn a variety of cold-joining techniques and walk away with a broader skill level and a love of working with mixed metals.
