About the Event
With one $275 ticket, you are purchasing two individual sessions for this two-part class. Sessions are held on Nov. 3 and Nov. 10. Classes run 6-8pm on both dates.
This is a great place to begin your metalsmithing journey! Design a pendant in copper. Learn how to cut out shapes from sheet metal with a jeweler's saw. Add hammered textures, patina, and/or metal stamp patterns to your piece. Professionally finish your work so that it can be comfortably worn.
You will become familiar with essential metalsmithing tools. All materials and tool usage are included. (There are no torches in this class.) Classes are intentionally kept small to ensure students enjoy individualized attention and encouragement.
Instructor Rachel Morgan Kalina has been creating The Wood & Watch jewelry since 2007. She’s taught students at The Art League of Long Island, Firefly, Socrates Sculpture Park, Nest on Main, and elsewhere. Rachel prides herself on crafting a welcoming atmosphere for students, and she looks forward to working with you, too!
