This course is aimed at jewellery students who already have some jewellery and silversmithing experience. Soldering is a key skill within the craft and one which students often say is the area they most fear or need most practice in. This course aims to explain the science behind solder, flux and preparing your metal. We will demonstrate several key soldering methods such as pallion soldering, sweat soldering, feed soldering and using a solder probe. After each demonstration students will have a go at the technique themselves, using pre-prepared pieces of copper. If you would like to brush up on your soldering skills, conquer your fears or have a better understanding of the techniques and science behind them, this course is for you.
