Make it in metal! Let your creativity shine! This hands-on class
introduces students to basic metalworking and jewelry
techniques. Design concepts and idea generation will also be
discussed. Designs can be translated into jewelry, containers,
objects, and small sculpture. Students will learn basic
metalworking techniques, including sawing, filing, soldering,
stone setting, forging, forming texturing, fusing,
“cold-connecting” and more. Here’s the opportunity for students
to put their chemistry knowledge to use in a =

practical application. Imagine a beautiful silver necklace, a
patterned bracelet, a sterling silver spoon, or a copper
container. Transform two-dimensional into three-dimensional
objects and enjoy every minute of the process.

Program runs from June 26 - August 7, 2009. Class meets Monday,
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:30am - 12:30pm
Classes will meet on July 4th.
