Description: For Beginners, we will be working with a simplified version that will have easy to cut shapes of your choice, so that you can get used to using your saw. We will be working in rich copper and will be learning shaping, texturing, soldering, forming and of course- sawing and filing. Lots to sink your teeth into!
For the Intermediate level students, we will be working in Sterling Silver. Your designs will be more ambitious and so will the level of skill you will need to complete the soldering. At this level, you will need to be familiar and comfortable with the butane hand-held torch, the jewellers saw and able to solder with minimal supervision.
This is a unique opportunity to work in a split-level class. Beginners will get to see more advanced techniques at play, and will be learning as they work on their own projects. Intermediate and advanced students will be working more independently, whilst still in a supportive environment where they are safe to try techniques and design ideas that they might not have felt comfortable trying out alone.
This also means that friends can come along together, no matter if one is familiar with silversmithing, and the other is brand new to the skill!
Best of all- it’s a great time to set a playdate with your metal, and dive into something new. See you there!
