In this one-day workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of soldering metal by creating 3-5 stack rings for yourself or loved ones for the holiday season. You will have the opportunity to personalize your rings by learning how to texture metal and how to add decorative elements onto your ring shanks. You will also learn how to use essential tools in silversmithing, how to handle a torch, the uses of different kinds of fluxes and solders - all in a relaxed and safe environment. We will provide coffee, tea, and snacks. Cost is $155 (all tools and material provided) and there are 8 spots available.
