For makers who already have soldering skills and basic knowledge of benchwork techniques, this five-day course with award-winning contemporary metalsmith Brigitte Clavette will be packed with exploration of texture and form to develop jewellery-making skills. Participants will achieve a variety of textures using hammers and the rolling mill and primitive casting techniques including sand casting and cuttlefish bone. These will set the stage for considered design and well-fabricated, meaningful jewellery pieces.
Estimated material cost excluding sterling silver: $75.00 (casting brass, cuttle fish bones, sand casting, flux, solder etc.) Sterling may be purchased at your supplier or at the NBCCD College Store or arrangements can be made with the instructor prior to the course.
