NOTE: The class skips September 5 and 26. This course is for beginners with no prior experience in a metals studio. It will focus on introducing fundamental fabrication skills such as sawing, filing, texturing, shaping, polishing and basic stone setting. You will learn studio safety, how to determine the order of construction, as well as the proper and safe use of tools and equipment. You will also learn to become comfortable with using a flexshaft and an acetylene torch. Our fully stocked studio provides all the tools necessary. Material requirements and cost (metal and cabochon stones) will be discussed in the first class (approximately $40). Also good for people who have not worked with metal in a while and want a basic refresher course.
