If you’re ready to get a little movement into your work but have yet to start your hinge making journey, let fabrication maestro Jenn Wells guide you through your hinges love story! This demo-focused virtual workshop will cover three ways to create a hinge that will be incorporated hinges directly into a jewelry piece, as well as a hinge you can attach later.

Jenn will also cover three distinct solder set-ups for creating the hinges and will cover tips and tricks on how to keep it stress free! Starting with a basic, easy to understand hinge, the class will consider how the hinge will open and close, the range of motion it allows for, and what situations it best suits – the course will then apply and build off this information for the following two hinges. A handout will accompany the class, laying out hinge anatomies and pertinent hinge-making information, as well as variations that can be applied.

Fall in love with hinges while learning stellar fabrication techniques and how to bring the magic of kinetics to your jewelry designs!

Register for the course!
