Rivets & Cold Connections

Come learn a variety of techniques for joining parts securely, without the use of heat or solder. This workshop will cover a wide range of mechanical joints that can be achieved with simple tools. We will be working with simple headed rivets, roves, blind rivets, tube rivets, coiled joints, mini screws, and much more. There will be practice samples, as well as the option for a finished piece of jewelry to take home. We will work with brass, copper, silver, and horn or antler, learning how to determine the appropriate sort of cold joint for the materials at hand.
