Instructor: Amy Pike

Location: Sycamore, 7231 Tuition: $241.00

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, you will become familiar with the basic tools and techniques used to make jewelry from metal. You 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 lifelong practice in the art of metal smithing or just a chance to try something new and make some of your own art jewelry from metal.
