JULY 21 - 27, 2024 | OLIVIA RUXTON

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:  In this workshop we will cover all of the essential skills for metalsmithing including: sawing, piecing, filing, soldering, and polishing. Through project-based hands-on instruction each student will learn to fabricate findings to make a brooch, how to add a variety of textures to a set of stacking rings or pair of earrings, and how to create a bezel setting for a stone to add to a ring or pendant. Each student will leave with at least three finished pieces and a vast knowledge of creating handmade jewelry. This class is great for someone who has no prior metalsmithing experience or someone who is looking to expand their skills in the studio.
