Rent a jeweler's bench on October 30 and get access to all the tools and equipment you don't have! Unlike other open studios where you are "on your own", Kenzie will be there to answer your metalsmithing questions so that you become more comfortable with jewelry fabrication. Please note: there is no one-on-one instruction, but this is geared more for you to be able to ask questions if you get stuck.
Those who have taken Intro to Metalsmithing (or Metals 1 or equivalent) will have access to a flex-shaft, bench, our Intro to Metalsmithing tool box with tools, well-ventilated soldering station, rolling mill, vice, mandrels, and hammers. Jewelers will be required to bring their own hand tools beyond what is included in the box and materials (such as metal, solder, flux).
Prerequisites: Metals 1 or equivalent
Duration: 4 hours, 10:00-2:00 (come and stay for as long as you want, but price remains the same)
Max. of 5 students
Students must bring all their own materials: metal, flux, solder, and an N95 or KN95 mask for polishing. Hand tools will be provided. Students can order materials online at Rio Grande Jewelry Supply.
Last day to cancel for full refund is October 24.
