The beginner silversmith will work with copper and sterling silver to learn techniques including chasing, sawing, filing, soldering and polishing. Each student has the opportunity to complete a band ring, pair of earrings or pendant. Returning students who have satisfactorily completed the beginning course requirements may work on other projects with the approval of the instructors. Silver, extra copper and stones must be purchased, as needed, for each project at an additional fee. Students may be permitted to repeat classes provided their activity is consistent with regular class routine. Students must furnish their own basic tools or purchase ($37) them the first night of class.
