This course will cover the basics to get you a solid foundation in direct metal fabrication using traditional metalsmithing techniques. We will start with techniques for pattern layout, sawing, filing and finishing, and then move into joining techniques, such as riveting, cold connections and soldering. We will cap off the course with a basic stone-setting project to hone more precision into your craft. Every session will include demonstrations as well as studio time with individual assistance from the instructor. NOTE: Previous jewelry making experience is not required. Please bring a sketchbook to the first session.
