Toolmaking for Jewelers

June 29-July 3, 2018

Put down those commercial tools – we’re metalsmiths and we can make our own! In this workshop we will start by making a matching scribe and center punch set while we learn the remarkable properties that make steel so useful. We will then make a riveting hammer and, with any time that remains, chasing tools, burnishers, and more! Demonstrations will include shaping and forging, decorative filing, hardening and tempering, and handling of our hammers. Previous metalsmithing experience will be helpful but not completely necessary. Beginner and Beyond
