About the event
March 11 & 13, 2022, 10am to 12pm - ZOOM
This workshop has moved from in person to ZOOM. Both days of the workshop will include a 2 hour interactive lecture and demo. Between presentations, you will have time to work at your leisure toward a project. Recordings of the workshop will be available for 30 days following the event.
Through fabrication methods and proper soldering techniques, students will learn how to create a wire prong setting to trap objects in their jewelry. We will also learn a variety of soldering techniques (such as sheet & wire applique, open filigree wire work, and simple kinetics) which will help students add surprising and delightful details to their work. Many other short cuts, tips & tricks, and techniques will be covered as we go along! Soldering small to large components will be a major part of this class. Students should be prepared with ideas of jewelry designs they want to complete or the instructor can give assignments. Please note: We will only be using a torch with two gases in this class, such as the Little Torch and the Meco Torch. Be prepared to have a mind-blowing experience time working with this tool!
SKILL LEVEL: All levels, though some soldering experience is required
