Join visiting instructor, Rachel Reichert for an introduction to basic silversmithing. Through the creation of sterling silver rings, we’ll explore jewelry making techniques such as sawing, filing, sanding, forming, and soldering. Students will start with tool and studio introduction, then design and fabricate rings from sheet and wire. Whether you want to learn new skills or advance existing skills, this 4-hour workshop is open to students of all experience levels.

Having studied at the Oregon College of Art & Craft, Boise State University, and Penland School of Crafts, her work is influenced by cultural heritage, and the identity of place.
