No class on May 25, makeup class on June 8. Students learn to transform sheet copper, silver, or gold into hollow forms; a cone, cube, or sphere. Participants are also introduced to the art of repousse--an ancient technique of working metal from both sides to create a bas relief sculptural surface. Emphasis is on using various types of hammers, steel forms, chasing and repousse tools, and soldering methods as students explore metalsmithing techniques that change metal into detailed jewelry, containers, or small sculptures.

The Art League Jewelry and Metals program covers various aspects of designing and creating art jewelry and small metal objects. Each class is suited for beginners, unless noted. The classroom is fully equipped with an extensive assortment of tools and machines. Personal tools and supplies are discussed during the first class. A $20 lab fee is payable at the first class. Basic jewelry tool kits may be rented for home use for the duration of any jewelry class.
