Instructor: Sarah Tector
Rings unite! Create your own spinner ring from silver (or copper and silver) using a forming technique known as anticlastic raising. In this process an outer band will be formed in such a way to creatively “capture” one or more moving rings. Learn to size, shape and solder sheet metal and wire into rings. Basic soldering, forging, and forming techniques will be covered. Silver and copper will be provided to complete one spinner ring. This is intended as a class for students that have some sort of studio available to them – see the list below of studio equipment needed. Students will need to order/provide their own materials for making this ring [expect to pay $25 – $35 for materials]. A supply list will be provided upon registration.
This class is beginner to intermediate skill level. Someone who has never worked with metals before could do this, but it is also a great refresher. Visit Sarah’s website: stectormetals.com.

Most of our classes fill quickly so there is often a wait list. Late notice cancellations require considerable processing and labor to try and fill the reserved seat. Therefore, cancellations under 10 days are not able to be refunded unless we can fill the space.
• If cancellation occurs 10 or more days prior to the start of a class, a 75% refund of payment will be issued; 25% of payment is assessed for processing charge.
• If cancellation occurs less than 10 days prior to the start of a class, a refund cannot be issued unless the space can be filled. If the space is able to be filled, a 50% refund of payment will be issued.
If you find you need to cancel out of a class you have registered for, you must drop the class via Reporter», our new online registration system
Cancellation requests will not be accepted at the main desk or via phone or email.
To receive an optimal experience and get the most out of the class, attendance is important as there are no provisions for make-up sessions for missed classes.
Names are accepted on waiting lists via Reporter» after a class is full until the day the class begins. Wait lists are only valid for the current semester’s class – wait lists are not carried over to the next semester.
