Aug 31 - Oct 19
Class Description

Learn the basics of box construction, H-patterns, and synclastic forming for hollow rings using sheet metal and multiple solder joints of varying difficulty. This approach will allow you to build lightweight yet volumetric forms.  Piercing is an integral part of soldering hollow forms and will be considered as a design enhancement.  Scoring and bending and hammer forming will also be covered. Your finished pieces will incorporate various approaches to surface embellishments.  

Projects will be introduced in copper or brass and working in sterling silver will be discussed. Students will be encouraged to complete at least one project in sterling silver.

Students must have prior soldering experience to take this course. It does not need to be extensive, but familiarity with torchwork and soldering principles is expected. Our Welcome to Jewelry classes offer this introduction.

This class may be repeated by past students.

Class size 4 – 12 students. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required. Masks are required to be worn for all studio coursework. 

Supplies are available for purchase through our Tool Shop.
