In this evening class beginners will start by making simple ring bands and then move onto making a bezel/rubover stone setting in a ring or pendant or earrings. This course equips you with basic metal-working skills including cutting, forming, soldering, cold joining and finishing. More experienced students can come along with self directed projects. The class runs for 8 consecutive Mondays at a cost of $420.
New students start by making a copper band to familiarise yourself with the tools and learn how to saw, file, shape, solder and polish/texture metal. This is followed by constructing a customised silver band, then a simple cold joining technique project which will teach you techniques such as such as bezel setting or riveting. Cold joining techniques allow for stones or other materials that can’t be heated to be combined with metal. This class is now full.
This is an evening class for our lovely returning students. Once you have completed at least 2 x eight week blocks of the introduction classes or have had sufficient experience elsewhere, you can join us for diverse making and a friendly supportive environment. The students are producing exciting and varied work at an advanced level. You are free to pursue self directed projects with technical support and assistance with design and concept development.This class is now full.
