2 Day Workshop with Leah Meleski
Presented in Partnership with Whatcom Community College
April 14 – 15, 2023
This exciting two-day workshop shows students of any skill level how to make a series of silver, stackable rings. Participants will start with wire, sheet metal, and loose stones and turn them into as many as 6 coordinating rings to wear together or alone. Throughout the class, students will be introduced to basic skills that are essential to metalsmithing; including sawing, soldering, sizing, texturing and polishing metal. We will review both bezel settings for cabochons and how to create our own tube settings for faceted stones. Students will leave class confident with their soldering skills and a handful of rings!
Members & Non-Members: $179
