Metalsmithing Class

The next class is 2 sessions:  Thursday, August 5th, and Monday, August 9th:  Stacking Rings with Stones.  Both sessions 5p-9p.

Build a set of five stacking bands, all different, and set three of them with bezel set stones.  We will be working in silver.  Kit cost is $10.00 and includes all necessary materials, printed instructions and consumables.  Skills learned include: proper measuring for different gauges of metal for ring bands.  Precision is key!  Using calipers and stone setting punches.  The importance of annealing.

Certification Classes:  Now that Covid-19 restrictions have eased, certification classes have resumed.  Kathy will notify those of you signed up.  But please keep in mind that the list has become quite long.  We will get to everyone eventually though.  Thank you for your patience.  If you are interested in scheduling Metalsmithing Certification please send your name and contact information (name, email address, and phone number) to HGMS@wildivystudio.com.  We will contact you and set up a day for you to come.  Those who sign up will be notified when the next class will be scheduled.  We are looking at having the Certification Class on a night other than Monday or Thursday since seats on both work session nights are full.

IMPORTANT!  CURRENTLY CLASS SIZES ARE LIMTED TO 6 STUDENTS PER SESSION.  YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASSES BECAUSE OF THE LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS.  YOU WILL NOT BE ASSURED A SEAT IN THE CLASS IF YOU SHOW UP AT THE DOOR!
