In the first half of this six week class, you will explore the basic fundamentals of working with metal to make jewelry. Learn basic techniques such as sawing, filing, roll printing, finishing and cold connecting (connecting metal without the use of heat). The second half of the class will introduce you to new techniques, such as soldering, bezel setting, metal forming and construction. In addition to reference samples students will begin to develop skills and personal creativity through instructor-guided projects that focus on design and execution. Each student will be encouraged to complete two to three finely crafted pieces while becoming more proficient with the materials, tools, studio equipment and safety practices. This class is also a great class for previous entry level students who'd like additional instruction and support. *Materials Fee not included in tuition. Expect to pay around $40.00 per student for materials fee first day of class*
