SOLDERING

(Beginner, Intermediate) (4 Hours)

 

Are you a beginner who wants to learn to solder but are afraid to try it on your own? Have you learned the process but still find it difficult/frustrating to get your metal pieces to hold together or, worse, constantly melt them? Are you confused by the different torch types discussed in the jewelry books and magazines? This class will walk you through the entire process- techniques, equipment, safety and soldering science- as you perform a series of exercises designed to present you with typical soldering situations, including a hollow form that can be worn as a pendant. Learn solder placement, metal support, heat control, resists, and tricks to make the process fun!

 

Includes solder, flux, copper and brass. Silver (optional) is available for an additional charge.

 

Class size limited to 4 per session.
