Soldering Boot Camp, Idyllwild Arts Academy, Idyllwild, CA
Learning confidence in soldering is the secret to fabrication. This five day class is designed to help you learn all the basic solder techniques and some of the tricky ones as well!
The student will build proficiency in the soldering process through and understanding of soldering equipment, different gasses, studio set-up and torches. Instructor will explain the different solders, the variety in temperatures from various manufacturers and how to maximize the full range of solders beyond the basic hard, medium and easy. Students will learn pick soldering, chip soldering, and stick soldering. Instructor will also cover how to solder tricky findings on pieces, how to solder on metal clay and how to fuse metal. There will be ample time for students to practice pieces for different styles and learn the proper layout for work with multiple soldering operations. Repetition will reinforce each student’s skill set and students will walk away with a greater understanding of how metal heats and why.
There will be a final project employing all of the soldering types. This INCLUDES A hollow form, textured brooch, pendant or earrings WHICH contain a stone and gold appliqué. You should be able to walk away from this class not only with a piece of jewelry, but with the confidence to tackle any soldering problem you encounter.
Students of all levels are welcome. Some Silver soldering experience and basic knowledge of sawing and filing would be helpful to accomplish more in this class.
