This four-hour workshop will address basic metalworking techniques such as sawing, filing, sanding, forming, and soldering sterling silver rings. We’ll start with tool and studio introduction, then design and fabricate rings from sheet and wire.
All skill levels welcome. Appropriate for ages 16 and up.

This winter The Center launches its Crafts Series One Night Workshops that will take place annually at The Center, Hailey. Each series will be three nights, offering three different opportunities to work directly with instructors in a hands-on, skill-based environment. Designed to be introductory, fun and non-intimidating, these workshops offer a peek into a variety of crafts, from jewelry to wood printing, to fiber arts. Join us and try your hand at crafting some art!
The 2018 Craft Series One Night Workshops are generously supported by Heather Horton.
