Building A Foundation In Metal
Metal has a wonderful dualism: the ability to be both rigid and malleable, fluid and then solid, in a matter of seconds. Explore the fundamentals of metalsmithing through jewelry making and learn processes that are at times meditative, absorbing, challenging, and ultimately satisfying. Start with the basics of sawing, filing, and soldering in base metals of brass and copper, then experiment with stamping, hammering, roller printing, and finishing. Students will leave with finished pieces, and a foundation in metalsmithing for creating wearable art made by your own hands!
