Beyond hammer textures, metalsmiths of all levels will learn the nuances in adding unique textures to metal in this one-day jewelry class!
Sometimes texture is an important design element, sometimes it’s a way to express something in your jewelry, sometimes it’s a way to hide a mistake, and sometimes it’s just fun!
If you are interested in learning a variety of ways to approach texture than this is the class for you. Students will learn different methods to create texture using a torch, stamping tools, hammers, and flex shaft tools.
Class duration: 8 hours with a 30-minute break for lunch.
