Learn through instructor demonstration and guided, hands-on practice how to safely set up a soldering station, ignite your torch, anneal, and begin to solder metal together.

This is an opportunity to work with the industry-standard Smith® Little Torch and propane/oxygen torch during this two-day evening class.

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 also helps you acquire a studio skills card for access to the torches during jewelry open studio times. You get to take home your soldering sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.
