May 16 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

  |   Multiple Session Class (See all dates)
This class runs 6 Thursdays, starting April 25th

Class Description
We will start with learning how to saw shapes and designs. Next students will learn basic soldering techniques to produce a simple silver ring. Second, students will learn to texture using the rolling mill, with different metals and finishes. We will then take these pieces and use cold connections (rivets) to fabricate them into a pendant.

Students will be introduced to the basics of stone setting and will be provided with one cabochon and bezel of their choice. We will then work on several projects (of your choosing) to hone your soldering technique.

This class will prepare you for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. Each session will provide a lesson or demo and hands on work time.
