Welcome to the 1st Orion Welder workshop at the Folk Art Center, headquarters of the Southern Highland Craft Guild & at the Mountain Metalsmiths School on June 22-23 at a cost of $110 per person. This workshop is open to jewelers who own an Orion welder and want to increase their knowledge on how to use it, jewelers who are thinking of purchasing one, or who just want to find out about it.
Saturday,10 to 4 pm at the Folk Art Center, different welders will be put through their paces, without the high cost of purchasing or maintaining a laser. You will learn to repair porosities, re-tip prongs, weld dissimilar metals together, weld bezels together, and resize rings. Sunday, 10-3 at the Mountain Metalsmiths School, come see an Orion in action on a jeweler's bench.David and a tech rep from Orion will be here to answer your questions. All workshop fees are donated to the Southern Highland Craft Guild for their educational programs. $25 deposit made out to SHCG will hold your spot.
