This course will start with a review of the basics in cutting and shaping metal and then move to the use of torches to explore soldering, annealing, bezel setting, enameling and more. Each week will allow students the opportunity to learn “hot” techniques” as well as design their own sculptural work or jewelry. A $30 lab fee covers the cost of studio chemistry, fuel and supplies for torches, plus sheet copper and wire to begin the course. Additional sheet metal and wire are available for purchase. Class size is limited to 12 students.
