RIVETED RING WORKSHOP

$140.00

Riveted Ring Workshop

Saturday, September 9th, 2017 from 10 am to 6 pm

Riveting is a jewelry technique that involves mechanically connecting sheets of metal, or alternative materials, together with tubes or wires. Different colors and types of metal can be attached together to create a richly layered look. In addition, the rivets give the piece a more contemporary or industrial feel. In this workshop we will be making a riveted ring.

Demonstrations will be given on texturing and sawing metal, creating ring templates, and riveting pieces properly to create a secure connection.

Each student will leave the workshop having completed their own riveted ring!

Beginning to advanced jewelry students welcome!

All materials are included in the workshop.

There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. Bring your own sack lunch or grab lunch in the area.

Fee: $140.00 per student, includes materials
