[Workshop] Jacob Snow gold carving


#1

We have a few spaces left in the upcoming Jacob Snow gold carving
workshop. The class will be held in my studio in Salida, CO. Sept.
18-22 , 5 days price is $425.00. Course description follows. Jerry
Scavezze

This five day workshop is designed to hone your piercing technique
and learn the basics of hand carving with gravers. You will learn to
prepare gravers properly, layout, scribe, pierce and then carve the
design into a finished piece. Workshop fee (50.00) will include metal
(Sterling) and a set of gravers that you will shape and then take
home with you. Upon registration we will provide you with a list of
common hand tools you will need to bring. Jacob is one of the best
stonesetters in the country, (he set Michael Good’s triple loop
bracelet, square diamonds in a piece that flexes and none of the
stones come out). He will talk about stone setting science and
practices, but advanced stone setting is another course. This course
will be primarily about carving gold. Google Jacob Snow or Tom Herman
to get an idea of the technique. These two goldsmiths are among the
best jewelers in the country and exhibit two visions of the same
technique. This class is not for beginners, you need to have a basic
working knowledge of metalsmithing techniques. Questions, call (719)
