Description
This class will introduce students to period and modern techniques for shaping base and precious metals with hand tools. We'll review cutting and bending without the use of heat, tool use and care, and safety basics. It's incredibly satisfying transforming a dull, flat piece of brass into a shining, three-dimensional lacework. Learning how to do it is not the work of a day or a month, but this class will be a good start on that path.
