Virtual Workshop: SMALL SCALE STEEL WELDING with JESS TOLBERT

Virtual Workshop: SMALL SCALE STEEL WELDING with JESS TOLBERT

February 18 & 25 2022
12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET

Using steel wire and steel sheet, students will be introduced to micro-welding using the Smith Little Torch. Working with steel can provide the freedom to experiment with scale, form, and multiples without the burden of cost found in precious metals. We will cover proper set-up and safety of using the Smith Little Torch in your studio, and then jump into the application of oxygen/acetylene micro-welding. Emphasis will also be placed on the basic use of steel as a material in jewelry from design considerations, finishing, to historic and contemporary artist examples. Students can expect to gain knowledge and confidence in using this versatile torch and material while working on several samples and elements to incorporate into their work.
