It seems everyone has caught the soldering bug, and in response to your requests we have put together this Basic Soldering class for you. Local Artist Dede Warren will share her knowledge of soldering on a variety of mediums. This workshop will give you a basic knowledge of what you can and cannot solder, the basic tools involved, and a variety of ways in which to use this skill.

Our focus in this hands on workshop will be the elements of soldering and not project oriented. Dede will supply the materials to create your own soldered chain, a 3 dimensional bezel, and will share how to create a chunk, rough finished soldered 3 dimensional piece, along with using a variety of patinas. This class is rich in soldering techniques, and our focus will be on learning the art of soldering. While we will create chain and a bezel we will not be creating a finished project with either of these. If you have a 3 dimensional piece you'd like to solder, please bring these with you and we will discover and troubleshoot the ways you can solder these pieces.

Supply to Bring:
• soldering supplies if you have them • tin snips • basic jewelry pliers
• apron or towel for your lap • old cookie sheet to work on
