What you'll learn in this gold class:

Students will learn several techniques to make their gold go as far as possible. Skills include making a gold-rimmed silver setting for a faceted stone, making a silver ring with a thin layer of gold on the outer surface, making bi-metal from scratch, making gold over silver patterned sheet, getting clean solder seams where gold meets silver, how to get a deep black on silver when oxidizing and many other tips and tricks.

This is the second teaching engagement in the Washington DC metro area for Alex and presents an incredible opportunity to learn from, and work with, a leading goldsmith and educator. All of his students last time enjoyed working with Alex immensely. If expanding your skill level is something you strive for this workshop will be of interest. We are very fortunate to have had Alex add Jewelryclassdc to his busy schedule. 

Additional Fee: Materials cost is approximately 275.00 – 350.00. Students should bring a check, made out to Alex, for the gold purchased

Prerequisite: Experience with soldering and basic metalsmithing tool knowledge is required for attendance at this workshop.

Please Note: 

  • Students should not wear loose clothing and should be able to tie their hair back.
