In this class, we will take beginners through the process of learning the use of jeweler's hand tools, soldering, and ring making techniques. This is a group class with up to 8 other students. In this class students begin learning the use of the jeweler's saw and file, and move on to creating a soldered project, combining multiple pieces of brass and/or copper to form a project of their design! In the second half of the course, students learn to make a silver ring, with a cabochon stone set on top.


Quarterly, for 8 week sessions which meet once a week, 6-9 pm.
