What's Included

Get Comfortable With Soldering Instructor: Nancy Blair Prerequisite: DSMA Metals I (no grandfathering) Class Limit: 10 Class Duration: 8 Hours Many students struggle with becoming proficient in soldering. Without proper guidance and practice it is difficult to progress in this very important aspect of creating metal jewelry. This essential workshop is specifically designed to foster an atmosphere of support and encouragement. Nancy will be right there supervising your soldering and offering suggestions. She will help make this complicated process easier and even enjoyable. Now is the time to get some hands-on guidance and lots of practice doing only soldering. This is an amazing ‘techniques only’ class with 8 hours to invest in getting a lot more comfortable flowing solder(s) in a variety of situations and configurations. Step by step, students will learn how to do a variety of soldering without worrying about melting anything. All soldering will be done with red brass which is cheaper than silver and performs very closely to silver during the soldering process. Students will set up and do many different types of soldering using different solders in these processes. By the end of the day students will have a greater technical understanding of how to use the torch to properly flow solders and be more confident to try soldering silver and other metals on their own. In the morning, Nancy will address the principals of soldering and good practices when soldering. Students will learn about the properties of solder and when to use which solder. In the afternoon, students will practice soldering and problem solve any issues that may arise.
