Learn the basics of metalsmithing as you make your own small metal sculptures, toys or jewelry. During this 10-week course, we will explore fundamental techniques for cutting, forming, and joining metal using common, everyday tools. In particular, we will focus on cold connections—methods for joining metal that do not require heat, so they can be done anywhere, without special equipment.
Students should bring at least two square feet (12”x12”) of 18-gauge metal sheet in copper, brass, or nickel silver to the first day of class. This can be ordered from most jewelry and metal suppliers, including Rio Grande or Otto Frei, and should cost between $50 and $90 depending on the kind of metal.
This course meets 10 Fridays starting February 23 from 12:00-2:30 pm in the START Studio (W20-429) and is taught by Justin Playl.
