Interested in learning about soldering? Here is a workshop for you! Workshop instructor Vicki Karrigan will teach you how to use a solder iron and torch to perform two very different techniques as she introduces you to the art of soldering for jewelry-making. You will discuss soldering tools and equipment with a focus on safety and getting comfortable using these new tools. After some practice exercises, you will create a few pieces of jewelry— a ceramic medallion and a pair of silver earrings. No previous experience is necessary. This class is perfect for those curious about soldering for jewelry. Everything is supplied for this workshop. If you wish to purchase a toolkit to use in future projects, please register before Friday, June 16th. Vicki Karrigan is a talented jewelry-maker and artist living in Cadiz, Ky.
