DESCRIPTION
This course will introduce students to the art and craft of silversmithing. Teaching artist Sarah Calautti will guide students in how to create a simple ring including forming a bezel, soldering, cutting out and filing backplates, forming a ring shank, burnishing a bezel around a stone, and adding textured details.

Students will work with an open flame torch, soldering flux, various tools, and sterling silver to create their very own heirloom. Various pieces of turquoise and other stones will be provided for students to choose from. Students must be able to hold a torch, pliers, and files for short amounts of time. No previous experience or prerequisites required!

SUPPLY INFORMATION
All required materials and tools will be provided, however students can bring their own special cabochon if they wish!

COURSE DETAILS
After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal. Learn more

ABOUT SARAH
Sarah Calautti is a self-taught silversmith who blends traditional, southwestern silversmithing techniques with Pacific Northwestern scenes. She began her journey as a silversmith while living full-time in a school bus. After landing on the Olympic Peninsula and becoming enveloped in its maritime forests and kelp beds, her work has become a direct reflection of the beauty that she finds here.
