Introductory/Intermediate Metalsmithing Retreat
Heavy on the hands on experience & focus on different soldering methods, proper equipment, use & safety, fabricating bezel, fabricating ring bands, cuff & findings (clasps, bails, etc), texturing and forming metal, discuss proper metal thickness for different projects, and finishing: clean up and polishing. Projects to choose from will include creating a cuff bracelet, link bracelet with clasp, stacking ring bands, a bezel set stone pendant or bring in your own projects you are working on if you would like to work through problems you are running in to.
Bring your notebooks, questions, stones, tools and torches if you have them.
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. Masks will be nessesary.
***Unlimited supplies of encouragement***
Limited to 2 spots
Talk with me, this is a very adaptable retreat.
