Metal Jewelry (Ages 12-14)
Learn to make wearable, metal earrings, necklaces and bracelets! We’ll cut, texture and shape metal using traditional metalworking tools, and try stamping and making holes for attaching. Then, we’ll sand, file and finish before exploring wire and beading techniques to join our pieces together. (Students in the 12-14 age group will have the opportunity to use an acetylene torch.)
- This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
