About the event

Discover how to create metal adornments using tools and materials that you can easily utilize at home. During the workshop, these are some of the things you will learn to do:

  • Cut metal with a jeweler's saw
  • Sand and clean metal
  • Stamp designs, words, and/or add texture
  • Attach jump rings
  • Add a polish sealer

You'll be working with copper. The techniques you will learn can easily be applied to working with sterling silver as well as brass. By the end of the session, you'll have a good understanding of the basic tools and supplies needed to start your own workspace, should you decide to continue exploring the world of metalsmithing.

These are some of the items you can create with the skills you'll learn: earrings, pendants, key chains, mobile phone charms, decorative hooks, ornaments, and more.

Things you could bring: If you have them, please bring a lead pencil and permanent marker, your prescription eye glasses and/or safety glasses, an apron if you prefer your clothing not get dirty.  

Safety Notes: Please wear closed-toe shoes and long pants. Long hair should be tied back away from your face. Refrain from wearing long dangling jewelry and loose long sleeves. 


We will be in Room #C
