See below for photos of projects and get an idea of how many sessions they might take, so you can plan your time wisely and design knowing what the possibilities are.
For example, the star ring in the main photo would take an absolute beginner 2-3 sessions to make (2 most likely).

Metal includes what you will use that session, not enough to take home and cut/prepare more. My suppliers are easy to get to in the time between sessions though, If you should need supplies!

Tools we have:
Acetylene torches for annealing, soldering, casting
Lost wax casting for small pieces in bronze or sterling
Rolling mill, 3″ wide for “printing” texture on metal
drill press

MIG welder
lotsa hand tools!

We are outside, dress warm and be sure to RSVP and reserve your spot by the night before, if you can. We only have 4 slots and that way I can plan accordingly.
