In this one-day class, you will learn through instructor demonstration and guided hands-on practice exercises: how to safely set up a soldering station, ignite your torch, anneal and begin to solder metal together.
You will be given the opportunity to work with the industry-standard Smith Little torch and propane/oxygen torch during this class.
All of the skills learned in this class will help you feel more comfortable and confident in our studio or yours and ready you for project classes. This class will also help you in acquiring a studio skills card for access to the torches during jewelry open studio times. You will get to take home your soldering sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.
