These adorable boxes are perfect for curio storage or for gift presentation.
They also look great displayed in a type tray! Learn metalsmithing basics and how to
make a round box with a perfectly fitting friction lid.

and brass boxes
A class can be really wide ranging. Come to my studio, play
with my toys, make art, meet like-minded students and expect anything!
Comfort with a Torch
Knowledge is power. Knowing how and why a torch works will make you
comfortable using one. We have both air/acetylene torches and an oxy/propane
torch. With 4 torches (and lots of safety training), you'll get a lot of practice time
with the flame.
Students receive an (excellent) instruction booklet to take home.
Everything for all
projects is supplied by the instructor, but if you want to work in
silver you'll need to bring your own.
Completely unique and unavailable anywhere but at the
Volcano Arts Studio.
A certain amount of hand-strength
is required in any metal fabricating you do.
