In this workshop, you will learn the technique of marrying metals to create patterns and imagery. You will combine copper, brass, bronze, and silver as your palette by soldering. You can then incorporate these partners into jewelry or other objects. Participants will learn which alloys work best under the torch and what metals can be formed after being combined. Mia will also demonstrate piercing, drilling, and forming. Previous experience with soldering and piercing is helpful but not necessary.
