About

This is an opportunity to work with the industry-standard Smith® Little Torch and propane/oxygen torch. You will learn through instructor demonstration and guided, hands-on practice.

The skills learned in this class will help you feel more comfortable and confident in our studio or yours and get you ready for project classes. This class also helps you acquire a studio skills card for access to the torches during jewelry open studio times. You get to take home your soldering sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.
