Beginning level to advanced
Soldering is one of the most basic skills in jewelry making. This workshop will cover the basic techniques that will result in successful soldering. Even if you have learned soldering elsewhere it will benefit you to take this class as many instructors don't emphasize the 3 simple steps that will cause problems if not followed. A variety of torches and gases, and torch control will be demonstrated. Learn what kind of torch best fits your needs; what other tools and equipment you will need; and how to set-up a safe soldering area in you own home.
