Soldering in the Round: Constructing Necklaces
Date: March 9, 2013
Location: Hidden Art Studio, 2926 Campbell St, Kansas City MO 64109
Using handmade glass discs and gems, we will explore the art of soldering objects with rounded edges. Using wavy copper foil, you will learn to make dots with the solder. After the rounds are soldered, you will be piecing them together with chain to make a round pendant collage. Some soldering experience will make this class easier, but is not required. All supplies for the class will be provided. If time allows, we will also be soldering colored glass gem rings.
