ONSITE: Metalworking (Ages 9-11)
Get acquainted with metal and learn basic metalworking techniques. Students will create individual projects using traditional jewelry tools. You’ll learn how to cut shapes using a jeweler’s saw and heat your metal to soften and reshape your work. We’ll also drill into metal, then use bolts, screws and rivets to connect it in new ways.
