This fast paced, fundamentals class covers safety and use of the butane micro torch, a great tool for beginners on a budget or in small studio spaces. In class, we’ll cover a couple of different butane torch options, basic equipment for fire use and solutions for cleaning metals. Students will work with sterling silver, fine silver, and copper as well as explore related skills, including flame control, metal gauging, annealing, work hardening, flattening, texturing, and shaping wire.
