In this class you will learn about soft soldering safety and necessary tools, how to prepare pieces for soldering, how to apply and build up your solder, how to add a jumping to your piece, and how to finish your piece with patina and/or sealant.
Basic Soldering is an in-person class at my studio in Sussex, Wisconsin. This is a 1-day class where you will complete several pieces while learning the basics of soft soldering with a soldering iron.
All supplies for this class will be provided. However, the only items you will be taking home are your completed pieces. During the class I will give you a resource list containing all the items we used in class and where to buy them, in case you decide to continue soldering.
Please note: This class is a basic SKILLS class, not a project class. You will make several pieces to completion, but there will not be a set project demonstrated for you to reproduce. This class IS a prerequisite to all future soldering project classes, including any that are offered online.
DATE: December 4, 2021
TIME: 10AM-5PM (please bring a lunch)
LOCATION: N63 W23583 Main Street, Sussex, WI 53089
Please arrive by 10AM, as class starts promptly at 10:15. About 30 minutes will be allotted for lunch, but the exact time will depend on when we get to a good break point. I strongly suggest bringing a lunch and snacks/beverages as there isn't a lot of options located near the studio. I do have a refrigerator and microwave for your convenience, and I will have a separate space set up for us to eat, away from our soldering stations.
