Riveting is a basic metalsmithing skill that is so handy for a variety of projects. Once you learn to rivet, you will be able to apply this technique on many different projects. The sky is the limit with riveting. Perfect for beginning metalworkers or when you don’t want to connect metal by soldering. Students will learn to make nailhead and ball rivets along with texturing, stamping nd allaying metal. After a lunch break, we will make a riveted ring and pendant using the techniques we learned in the morning.
