About the Event
In this workshop class you will learn all the ins and outs of one of the most basic and useful jeweler's tools, which incidentally, is also one of the most hated.
You'll learn about proper blade loading, which saw blades to use for what, how different materials respond, how to mark your material for sawing, inside cuts, and more. I'll have a variety of saws on hand for you to try, including the Knew Concepts and Green Lion saws, which have helped turn many an anti-saw person into a sawing master!
Our projects for the class will be mostly about learning how to use the saw and will be technique based, however, there will be a pendant project that you can complete in class (or at home, depending on the speed at which you work) and your practice pieces can be turned into charms.
Blades, practice metal, and templates are provided and you will have a reference handout to take home chock full of useful information. We will be using twist drill bits, center punches, scribers, sharpies, burlife/beeswax, and adhesive in class.
Everything is included in class, including the use of all tools. Bring yourself and a lunch (or plan to order something from a nearby place) and have a zen day of sawing!
