Cold connections and riveting can be creatively applied to metalsmithing, mixed media, found objects and jewelry. It’s an easy way to marry different kinds of materials together, like wood to metal or plastic. No soldering or gluing is required with this method. Tools, copper and brass materials are included for the class. If you would like to work on silver, bring your own. Learn how to set a rivet and make your own special rivets with silver, copper and brass from raw materials.

Stefan Alexandres creates artwork using ancient techniques – no molds or stamps, just hand tools. From 1964 to 1972 he apprenticed in metal arts in the traditional ways, as guided through the organized guilds of Greece. He draws inspiration for his metalwork from history, mythology, folk tales and real life. Website: stefanalexandres.com.
