Information

× ** Due to the specialized nature of this course, only 8 spaces are available. However, the first class will welcome all who are interested in metalsmithing!**

Join us for Metalsmithing II, where we’ll continue to explore fundamental and versatile skills of traditional metalwork. We’ll start with basic cutting and forming techniques, then learn ways to connect parts without the need for heat (great for mixed media work!) We’ll also explore ways to make necklaces using metal and fiber. Each student will create a traditional scarf brooch, plus a necklace or pendant that combines the skills that excite them. All skill levels welcome.
