March Metal Classes

This winter seems to have passed in a blur – which is just fine by me! We’ve settled nicely into our new classroom space, the lampwork studio is ready, and Rosemary is now putting the finishing touches on our metals studio. We’ve even got some brand spanking new equipment …A rolling mill!

Cindy Goldrick will be the first instructor to use our new metals studio. This weekend, she’s teaching two back to back brand new classes for us.

Saturday March 3rd

9:30am to 12:30pm 

 
This project is a lot of fun that will have you saw, punch, hammer, bang, bang some more, patina and stack these lovely, no-two-are-ever-the-same, stamped, dapped and riveted disks. Let your imagination go and you’ll find you can apply this technique to rings, necklaces and lots of other embellishments. I hope you’ll have as much fun making this piece as I did designing it.

1:30 pm to 4:30 pm 
 In this class you will discover the basics of folding, hammering, annealing and shaping metal. Students will be able to complete a copper embellishment to rivet to a leather bracelet blank, and a pair of earrings in class. We will play and pound and explore the amazing properties of copper. 
Next weekend, on Saturday March 10th – Those of you who have wanted to learn how to do basic soldering, now is your chance! 
10am to 1pm
