Silversmithing involves techniques that are found in jewelry but are more often used in the creation of objects such as bowls, eating utensils, serving sets, and various other items associated with the table.
In this class, we will start from the beginning – the spoon – one of the first utensils invented. There are endless possibilities with the type of spoon one can make, i.e. a serving spoon, baby spoon, hors d’oeuvre spoon, sugar spoon, etc.
The techniques covered will be forging and forming with a hammer, die forming, and roller printing.
Class size limited to 6 students.
