In this half-day workshop, you will create dangly, jangly bangles in the Artisan Asylum’s jewelry studio. The simplicity of the circular bangle form is a great way to discover the basic principles and activities in jewelry metalsmithing. In just a few hours, you’ll learn several texturing methods, how to shape metal into the bangle form, soldering to close the circle, and finally filing and finishing. This class is great for adults with little or no jewelry experience who want to try it in a short format.
Bang Out Bangles is a fun way to share a creative class with a friend, parent, or offspring. Your design will be guided by experienced instruction in this short-format class. Watch demonstrations, practice techniques, and then apply these to your own bangle!
