Not paper, not clay…... It’s Brass!!

Instructor: Linda Den Besten 

Friday  - 9:00am – 5:00pm 

Always wanted to give it a try on metal,but didn’t know where to start?! How about making this beautiful brass rose in a vase! This class offers you the basics in soldering and working with brass. It’s packed and loaded with information about different ways of soldering, why and how to anneal metal, straighten wire etc. And, of course preparation for further processing like cleaning, primer and paint the brass. In the end you will not only have a beautiful rose (or multiple) in a metal vase to take home, but you will also have the basic skills to work with brass at home. How about making a fire screen, a metal bed, a fence. Imagination is the limit and practice makes perfect!
