Jewelry Class – Soldering Boot Camp
February 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$60.00
This class will introduce students to the basics of sawing metal using the jewelers saw and the basics of soldering, using a hand-held torch.
In this “Boot Camp” you will learn how to use the standard jewelers saw, how to load the saw blade, make straight, curved and angle saw cuts. This is important since metal is sold in sheets and your design pattern will need to be cut from that sheet of metal.
Soldering is something that is misunderstood. Many feel it’s a skill that is difficult to learn let alone master. We will take the mystery out of soldering silver or other metals using basic tools available to you.
This class will cover a lot of material and skill sets. You will make a silver band ring that will require sawing, soldering and finishing to a high polish.
