Soldering 101 with Robin

After repeated requests, I've decided to have another soldering 101 class at my home Sunday, OCTOBER 25!   If you're interested let me me know.  I live in Torrance,CA and will give out the address when you've registered.

We'll go over all the basics to get you started: copper foil tape, sandwiched glass frames, bubble glass and liquid silver embedding.   I have a couple of soldering irons and equipment if you need to borrow or you can bring your own.  If you want to purchase your own soldering iron and/or equipment before class I'll give you the best resources locally in the South Bay or online: email me

TIME: 11-4P
COST: $100 includes instruction, food and materials.  
**Please bring your soldering equipment if you have it and jewelry pliers & wire cutters
                                     Sorry, no refunds!

Cost for the all day class is $100 which includes a light lunch and materials to make 3 charms.  If you need to use my soldering equipment there is a $5 fee and you need to contact me to reserve one ahead of time.

 Seating is limited to 8 students.  This is a process oriented course where you'll make at least 3 charms.    Here are some pictures for inspiration:
