This Valentine’s day, treat yourself to a new creative skill! In this class, students will learn and practice basic saw piercing skills at home. Through class discussions as well as real-time demonstrations, students will become familiar with piercing and filing skills that are essential for any new metalsmith. Students will make several samples and finish one or more pendants or pairs of earrings. Brass will be included in the class supply kits, but suggestions will be provided for students who prefer to work in sterling silver.
Prerequisite: none; beginners welcome.
*Students will pick up a supply kit from Pratt prior to the first class. Students will need to provide their own handtools based on a shopping list provided (this includes common jewelry tools such as a saw, files, etc). Students receiving Tuition Assistance may request to borrow a tool kit from Pratt. Please register at least one week prior to the class start date to have time for getting tools and supply kits.
