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 be doing:

  • Cut metal with a jeweler's saw
  • Pierce metals to saw out an interior design
  • Sand and clean metal
  • Add a polish sealer 

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

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 to class with you: If you have them, please bring a lead pencil and a 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
