Level 1: Domed Pendant and Earrings
Sign up then call 480-788-7336 to schedule your time.
In the process of making this Domed Pendant and Earring set, you'll learn to use the texture hammer and block to add surface texture to metal sheet. You'll use a disc cutter to cut out your circles. Then, you'll use a dapping block and punch set to add contour to the shapes. In each class we explore a different way of adding color to the metal and refining and finishing the surface for various effects.
General Notes for all the Metalsmith Workshops: Your class fee includes supplies. It is our goal to have you walking out with a completed item or nearly completed item by the end of class. As always in Tippy's classes, use of tools is included. There's nothing you need to bring as a general rule. For metalsmith class you may be asked to purchase your own N95 face mask available at Ace Hardware. All the other safety equipment is provided including a shop apron and safety glasses. Please wear natural fiber clothing and closed toed shoes. Keep your hair tied back and any dangling jewelry, sleeves or ties way from your hands and face. We ask that you stow your personal belongings away from your working area to provide an unobstructed path to the door and sink area.
