The Basics of Metalsmithing - Focus on Soldering with Nancy Gardner

May 11-13, 2018
Instructor: Nancy Gardner

This workshop will focus on the basics of metalsmithing – piercing, sawing, filing, fitting and most importantly and most challengingly, soldering. We will create one-of-a-kind fabricated pieces using and mastering metalsmithing techniques. Sterling silver stock will be availble for purchase in class to create a pendant or ring with a cabochon cut stone. Students are also encouraged to bring their own fabrication projects or designs to realize in class. Upon completion of this class students will have the required experience to participate in open studio or rent studio facilities with confidence. For those students with prior experience this class is a great opportunity to hone your soldering skils, expand your equipment knowledge and learn a few new fabrication tricks from a 35 year veteran.
