Master Class - Small Scale Forging for the Jeweler's Workshop
April 1st-2nd - 14 hours
Instructor: Wayne Warner
The workshop will focus on the many applications forging has in the jeweler’s workshop. Students will explore the ductility, plasticity, and crystalline nature of silver and gold alloys. They are introduced to forging metals to create beautiful forms or to simply size up a ring. A series of short exercises will be preformed by students with an emphasis on future applications for their own work. Layout techniques, template, model making and surface embellishment will be explored. Advanced students may customize their projects to challenge their abilities.
