Basic 3 - “Get Dimensional” - Hollow Rings       5:30 - 8:30

(Raychel Wengenroth)           

Let's shift towards a sculptural approach and explore more in depth knowledge of how to construct and solder with increased efficiency. Hollow rings are a great way to exercise your technical and fitting skills. Learn how to make the inner ring fit perfectly, then design anything you like for the outside shape with consideration to comfort and practicality...or not! These techniques are easily translated to containers and 3 dimensional components of all kinds. 

Skill Level: Basic 101 & Basic 2

Tuition: $250

Lab Fee: $15

Materials: Students bring their own or purchase from HVS 

Independent Study              5:30 - 8:30

For students with a broad range of technical skills needing individual attention with more advanced projects, from planning and materials needed to step by step process planning and hand holding. This class is a flexible continuation of your skills enabling you to have one on one consultation with the instructor. New techniques will be explored as individual needs are addressed. Classmates can observe demonstrations as they see fit.

(Raychel Wengenroth)               

Thirsting for more knowledge? This is the perfect class to expand upon the techniques you learned in Basic 101.  Cabochon stones can be added using a variety of bezel setting methods. The project of separate components that can be linked together allows each segment to be treated differently, enhancing the learning experience.

Hone Your Skills               12:00 - 3:00

(Raychel Wengenroth)           

This class is designed for people who have a fair amount of technical skill but lack the sleek craftsmanship that can make or break a design. Careful planning of a piece can make your life a lot easier and your work much cleaner. Knowing where to place the solder, when to trim excess material and how to achieve a pristine polish will be the focus of this session. Students will work on projects of their own choice while the instructor assists them with a logical, step by step approach.

Skill Level: Basic 2 and 3

Tuition: $250

Lab Fee: $15

Materials: Students bring their own
