Introduction to Metal Smithing

A metal necklace by artist Amy Pike.Introduction to Metal Smithing

Instructor: Amy Pike

Location: Sycamore Building, 7321 Tuition: $246.00

Carry on the tradition of metal smithing practiced throughout history. You will learn in a well-equipped metals studio on our beautiful campus. Through a series of projects, students will become familiar with the basic tools and techniques used to make jewelry from metal. We will learn to safely cut, shape, and texture metal, make connections through riveting and soldering, and apply finishing techniques such as polishing and patinas. The techniques learned in this class will be well-suited to those who’d like to have a small studio at home, and you will receive guidance about the essential tools needed to get started. With each project you will see a demonstration of the techniques we are learning and be given supplies to make your own design using those techniques. This class can be your first step to a life long practice in the art of metal smithing, or just a chance to try something new and make some of your own art from metal. Instructor: Amy Pike
