Mixed Metals Hot Rivets 2-Day Workshop with Julie Merrill

April 6 - April 7

Students will be exploring techniques with sawing and piercing, punching or drilling holes, cleaning sharp edges, and basic soldering skills. We will be learning how to make a chosen shape out of sheet metal (either brass or copper) with a jeweler’s saw.  Next, we will learn how to measure and prepare the metal to either drill a hole or use a hole puncher to create holes.  We will also be learning how to clean sharp edges and drill slag with a file or flexshaft abrasive.  Basic torch skills will be taught with safety.  And basic finishing processes for copper and brass jewelry.

Students, please bring if you have them: flat nose pliers, round nose pliers, cutters, jeweler’s saw, hole puncher, file, any flexshaft attachments for removing sharp edges and finishing.

Materials fee $75 / Classes 9:00 am-3:00 pm
