I'm going to be doing several workshops in Lander in October. The first one is Oct. 1, 2011, and it will be an Egyptian coiled bracelet. All the tools will be supplied and you'll take your finished project home that day.
On October 15, 2011 I'll be doing a class on introductory etching on metal. This is a fun workshop and we won't be using caustic acid, but instead a mordant that is generally used to dye textiles. There won't be anything to memorize and the projects are simple to make. All the supplies are included in the cost.
With this one we'll be doing direct resist methods, which means you draw on your own patterns. It does not mean you need to be any kind of an artist! You can write a name or draw a stick figure, and you'll be amazed at how well it looks on metal. Etching is also useful for the guys who want to do PCBs for their electronic projects.
This isn't a full-fledged workshop course on etching, but more of a laid-back and fun class. You'll have great projects to take home!
You can register for the classes through Central Wyoming College. Click on Non-Credit Courses for the Fall Schedule at this link:
