Mixed Metal Connections with Mandi Wirtanen.
*This class will be held at Mandalynn Designs Studio located at Madison & Brazee St. (Oakley) in the Brazee Street Studio complex.
Mixed Metal Connections $58.00 (3 HOUR CLASS) PLUS KIT $15-$20 includes all materials you see in pic plus a couple extra pieces for making charms or pendants. You will leave with a finished piece or two.
In this class you will learn that soldering is not required to create connections between multiple pieces of metal.
When you want to connect a variety of metal components together without using heat, it is called a "cold connection.
Cold connections come in two different categories: pierced and adhered. Pierced cold connections include riveting. Adhered cold connections are created using glues, clays and bonding materials such as Epoxy.
In this class you will learn to flatten and shape your metal. We will use the pierced metal method using both ready made and handmade rivets to combine layers of material together. You will practice stamping the metal to create texture and design.
This is a beginner class and pairs well with the beginning fabrication class offered by Dave Young.
REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF 3-SIGN-UPS. WOB WILL REFUND CLASS FEES IF LESS THAN THREE STUDENTS SIGN-UP.
