Sat 17 Feb / Soldering Masterclass
This soldering masterclass will teach you how to solder effectively using two different torches, an Orca and a Little Smith Torch. Learn to overcome challenges with soldering, a very common theme when you are first starting out on your jewellery making journey. We will spend some time focusing on 'sweat soldering' used to create jewellery with an overlay effect (multiple layered components), as well as using multiple tools, tricks and strategies for soldering more challenging pieces such as claw settings.
Please note:This class is for students that have completed our 'Introduction to Jewellery Making' course or equivalent at another school. You must have basic studio skills.
What to bring:
- A piece of jewellery that you have been having difficulty with or an image of a piece you would like to make so we can demonstrate how to get from A-B
- A folio with your jewellery design ideas & a pencil
- Waterbottle & packed lunch
- Please also bring your own silver if you have it, otherwise you can purchase some from us on the day at a cost of $3 per gram.
Please wear closed in shoes, long pants and have hair tied back.
