This class will introduce students to silver fabrication processes that include precise hot and cold forging techniques used by formally trained blacksmiths. Students will learn to alloy and pour two ounces of sterling silver into ingots and then methodically forge and fabricate the ingot into a sterling silver spoon or bracelet. This class will emphasize carefully thought out design based on the aesthetics of forged silver elements. Demonstration of some basic texturing and gemstone embellishments will be covered.
