Stephanie Swanson will be teaching an Introduction to Metalsmithing class starting Tuesday, March 6 from 6:30-8:30. This 5-week class will allow students to experiment with different techniques of manipulating metal into art. Participants will mostly be working with copper and some sterling silver, which will be provided. The goal is for each student to have a minimum of (3) pieces completed during class. Jewelry is the most common item to produce, but anything is welcome!
Techniques taught in class will include the following – soldering, cutting/piercing, texturing, fabrication, patination, flat-chasing, sanding/polishing, bezel setting, roller printing, and annealing. The cost for the class is $250, with members of the Art Center receiving a $25 discount. All supplies are included. The Chesterton Art Center is located at 115 S. 4th St., Chesterton, IN 46304.Register Today!
