[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

The warmth of copper and bright luster of silver make for a beautiful thing! In this class you will learn how to work with copper, cutting, texturing and forming. You will also make a piece of fine silver metal clay to add to the story of this union. With the metal clay you will learn proper handling, texturing, finishing and how to torch fire your piece and finally polishing.
The next step is learning about riveting and cold connections. This involves the proper way to drill holes or cut tabs to secure the two pieces into one beautiful work of wearable art.
You will complete one piece and possibly start a second, also in the class we will cover patinas to give depth and accent to your work.
Great class full of lots of information that will open many new doors in your art work world!
