9 am-5 pm
Sunday, May 19, 2019 to Tuesday, May 21, 2019
Andy Cooperman
Explore small-scale forging, focusing on rings. Forging allows you to move metal with a hammer, redistributing mass, and changing dimension without losing material. You’ll start by forging copper or brass rod and then move to sterling. Time permitting, we’ll melt clean sterling scrap into ingots and forge from there. Topics include simple model making, tapering, clean up and alternative methods. Prerequisite: Basic Metalsmithing skills or instructor approval. $650 if registered by February 1, 2019, $700 if registered February 2 – May 5, 2019, $750 if registered after May 6, 2019
