Prerequisites: Basic metal working skill required. 

Stir your next cocktail with a one-of-a-kind sterling silver bar spoon. This one day class will introduce you to the basics of forging a simple spoon, some hot silver work and soldering set ups for tricky joints. We will explore a variety of options to customize the spoon terminal including sterling pierce work, forged forms, a hollow form or a basic bezel setting. I hate to say it, but what an excellent holiday gift idea and a great way to spice up the party! Basic metal working skill required.

Materials INCLUDED:

  • Sterling silver to complete one bar spoon
  • Copper and brass for samples

Students MAY Bring:

  • Additional sterling (available in studio store)
  • A stone to ornament the spoon terminal (available in studio store)

Instructor Bio:

Dana Cassara began practicing the art of silversmithing at North Seattle Community College in 1992. She discovered her love for the craft after returning to school to pursue a teaching degree with a focus in social studies. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 with a B.A. in Comparative History of Ideas as well as Interdisciplinary Arts, because she just couldn’t stay out of the art department. She has been teaching jewelry design since 1999 and loves what she does.

Her aim as an instructor is to guide individuals through the learning process offering solid technical information, personalized attention, and lots of fun. With the intention of setting students on the path towards transforming their ideas into solid form, she hopes students will take the experience they gain in this studio beyond the classroom into their everyday life where problem solving skills and a profound sense of achievement always come in handy!

What students are saying:

“I attended the February beginners workshop. It was such a fun experience and so well run. Dana is an excellent and patient instructor. I'm currently attending the mentored workshops during the week to get more experience. I highly recommend dipping your feet into this little community if you are interested in making jewelry, want to try something new, or just want to work with your hands and be crafty for a weekend.” - Mary Beth

“So fun! Thank you for making something as intimidating as jewelry making fun & approachable!”

"So happy that my friend recommended me to take this class. Exceeded my expectations. Super looking forward to taking more classes!" -Jennifer
