Kate's Course description:
This 3-day workshop is definitely "metal-immersion". In fast-paced day one, students will complete an instructional sampler based on the unique sampler section in my book, "Simple Soldering". You will learn to saw, solder, rivet and set stones and really hone your technique without fear of “messing up”. We’ll have plenty of 1 x 1 copper squares and materials to use and experiment with in this section. We will use a simple and portable soldering station featuring butane micro torches, which is safe and easy to replicate at home.
Next we move to day two devoted to the wonderful world of ring making and stone setting! Tapping on the skills learned in day one, students will learn how to size, shape, design, and set stones to make rings for every finger (almost!).
On day three we will put the torches away and work on cold connections and patinas. Students will explore a variety of patinas on metal and create unique pieces featuring colored metal mixed with riveting techniques. (I can’t wait to share these great techniques with you.) These three days are going to be jam-packed, but promise to be educational, interesting and most of all, fun!
This is going to be an amazing weekend! Don't wait! Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for all of the details on Kate's workshop!
