Pre-requisite: Two Level 2 classes must be completed prior to signing up for any Level 3 class.
Class Description: This bold chain is a real statement piece. You'll learn to solder heavy wire into links and forge them into shapes and add texture, drill them and shape them to your will. You'll learn to make your own clasp to match the chain. Making this necklace will stimulate your design ideas to incorporate the bold "FAT Chain" links into other necklace components, in scarf accessories, in your earrings and bracelets as well as belts.
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.
