This is an introductory experience into making (forging or smithing) metal jewelry. No experience needed, but bring a little muscle, if you’ve done our copper class, brass takes a little more will/strength! This workshop is limited to 2 students so that you get maximum learning and assistance.
You’ll go home with 2 completed hand hammered brass bracelets and an introduction to working with brass using tools and fire.
We will learn and practice using Butane torches to anneal your brass, hammers to texturize them and smooth the edges to finish them for ultimate comfort so that they are ready to wear or gift!
Attendees will take home their bracelets along with some info on caring for their handmade wearable metal works of art.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to wear natural materials (no spandex, nylon, etc.) and long pants that cover your boots or close toed shoes. We’ll provide the rest of the safety gear you’ll need.
