Introduction to Forging Registration

Workshop location: Library basement   

 Using hammers and steel blocks, metal stamps and shaping tools, we will
texture, pattern and bend simple copper discs into one of a kind designs. In
this 3 hour workshop, instructor Maria Levin of Sawtooth Jewelry Studio in
Troy, will demonstrate a variety of simple metalworking techniques for
participants to try, and step- by-step projects for those who prefer a more
measured approach.  By getting to know the tools and materials through
observation and practice, we can make a variety of projects such as earrings,
pendants, gift tags or Christmas ornaments, to name a few.  This class is a
fun and relaxed introduction to basic metalworking, where experimentation
and taking chances is always encouraged and often rewarded! 
Class size is limited to 8 students, adults and teens.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant
program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew
Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by The Arts Center of the Capital Region.
