Beginning Metalsmithing Intensive
Come and immerse yourself in a fun 2-day workshop of basic and intermediate metalsmithing techniques! This workshop is heavily technique driven in teaching the How & Why of what we are doing. All you need is interest and patience as you’ll be guided along. Learn how to manipulate metal to create jewelry through demonstrations and hands-on work focusing on the proper techniques needed to build a strong foundation for the metal arts. Fabricated metal work will be designed on paper and translated into copper and/or brass with the guidance of the instructor. Participants will use hand and power tools and will learn the fundamentals of sawing, filing, hammering, shaping, texturing, torch control, soldering and patination. This workshop has a maximum of 4 students and will include all materials/consumables and use of all tools/equipment.
Participants must be at least 18 yrs old. No prior experience is necessary. Contact the studio if you don’t see a date that accommodates your schedule or for any other questions.
