New Daytime Section for Spring!
This course is for those who are ready to take the next step in their jewelry making and would like to become familiar with goldsmithing. We will discuss the various alloys and their solders, what to watch out for when heating and cooling, and go over everything from flux to final polish. Fabrication techniques will be covered as well as combining gold with silver for lower price points. Students will have the opportunity to melt scrap or new metal to pour ingots for milling sheet and drawing wire.
The first day of this course will be lecture and discussion followed by a demonstration, and it is not vital that students purchase supplies and materials before the first session.
This is an intermediate level class.
Basic jewelry fabrication and metalsmithing experience is required.
Withdrawals from class 7 days prior to the start of the class will receive a full refund for the class minus a 5% processing fee. If cancellation occurs 3-6 days prior to the class, we will provide a 50% refund. Cancellations 48 hours or less receive a 25% refund. Refunds will not be provided for no-shows or same-day cancellations.
We do not refund tuition for classes that students miss due to their own circumstances. Students enrolled in multi-session studio courses (excluding workshops and intensives) may make-up missed class sessions during open studio hours for up to two weeks after the last class meeting.
We reserve the right to cancel or discontinue any class, in which case you may choose to receive a refund, apply the class credit towards a different course, or receive a tuition credit for future use. Tuition credits are valid for up to one year. Refunds will be issued within 30 days.
