Workshop: Hammer Textured Dome Necklace
February 22, Thursday
Learn to use a hydraulic press and pancake dies to create a metal shape in copper, brass, or sterling silver. We'll go over sawing and filing techniques to get your metal shape ready for texturing. Next, learn to use a variety of hammers to add texture to your piece. Then learn to use dapping tools to create a domed form. We will finish them off with a quick buffing and hang them from a silver or gold plated chain for you to wear home! When registering, choose from a copper, brass or sterling silver pendant.
All materials and tools will be provided.
Class is open to any student ages 14+.
Six seats are available for this class.
