Torch Techniques 1+3=4

Metals, PMC & Glass!

With 1 butane torch + 3 hours you'll learn 4 new techniques. Who knew the butane torch was such a versatile tool?

Experience a taste-test of techniques, discover what you can do with your torch, and take it from there!

First, learn how to create simple fused fine-silver links to create a pair of earrings or pendants, and continue the technique at home to create more complex jewelry.

Next, learn how to reticulate a silver pendant by demo.

Then fuse glass to metal, and make simple metal-solder connections.

Finally, you'll learn how to hand-fire silver clay!

For maximum firing time, bring your own butane torch or share one of the instructor’s, and learn just how far you can take your creativity.
