About The Event
Available weekends January 8th-10th, Feb 5th-7th, Feb 19-21, March 5th-7th
(I can help find the second guest!)
Bring your notebooks, questions, stones, tools and torches if you have them. Heavy on the hands on experience & focus on different soldering methods, proper equipment, use & safety, fabricating bezel, prong and gypsy settings for stones, fabricating ring bands & findings (clasps, bails, etc), texturing and forming metal, discuss proper metal thickness for different projects, and finishing: clean up and polishing.
I can introduce projects or you can talk to me prior about designs you would like to work on and I will help guide you with techniques & skills to create them.
Micro instruction demonstrations scattered throughout & plenty of open studio work time with guidance; come and go as you please with me there to guide.
I have tools available if you want to travel light but I feel it's important to be comfortable with your own. All studio equipment and materials such as polish, flux, etc. will be provided.
Dress appropriately, polishing can be messy.
***Unlimited supplies of encouragement***
Limited to 2 spots at the benchso I can give optimum attention.
Talk with me if times are not quite right, this is a very adaptable weekend. You're not going to throw anything off coming later in the day or leaving early.

Plan to bring lunch & dinner, order in or step out. Last year we had wonderful potluck style dinners. So I encourage that if you are comfortable! Or I am in walking distance or a minutes drive to all of Delano's finest eating establishments.
