Explorations in Bi-Metal

with Juan Carlos Caballero
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
May 23 & 30 , 2021  | Time: 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. ET 
Students will learn how to maximize the design potential of bi-metal (silver/copper or silver/gold) to create metal objects and jewelry.  We will cover processes for fusing fine and sterling silver with copper for making bi-metal sheet. We will also explore various techniques, such as photo-resist etching and photo resist plating on copper and silver bi-metal for creative and decorative design opportunities.  Utilizing the flex-shaft for carving and scoring gold/silver bi-metal sheet for pattering configurations to create patterns for design possibilities will be taught as well.
