Metalworking 2 - REVISED

 

This hands-on class will build on the skills learned in first semester, and add some new ones. We are very blessed and excited that the church has given us permission to use small torches, so we will spend a good portion of our time working on our torch skills. We will be outdoors (at the pavilion) for torch-use days as weather permits, and torch use will be supervised by an adult at all times. We’ll also make use of the pavilion for serious hammering; with the use of torches to anneal work-hardened metal, we can create raised forms. We will still continue to explore and expand our sawing, wire wrapping, chain/chain mail and hammer techniques. We’ll experiment with new methods of patination (adding color and/or oxidization to selected areas of our metal), and investigate several different etching procedures for adding designs.

REVISED Goals for the Semester:

  • TORCH SKILLS - we will work to gain confidence and skill in safe torch use. Students will learn to anneal, quench, and pickle metal. We will learn basic soldering techniques, and continue to learn about the use of torches to add “flame color” to copper. We’ll also learn how to safely melt portions of wire for connection purposes.

  • Hammer: experiment with hammer texturing of metals using various hammers and punches/chasing tools, work hardening for strength, dapping (doming metal), refining stamping methods

  • Sawing: greater accuracy and control, sawing interior shapes (“piercing”), refining design skills

  • Wire wrapping: fewer kinked wires, smooth coils and shapes, designing and implementing own jig designs

  • Chain/chain mail: Gain confidence and skill in basic techniques, try new designs/weaves
