  • Reticulation *(New Technique Class)*

    January 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club, 3650 19 St NE #13, Calgary, AB T2E 6V2, Canada

    Reticulation *(New Technique Class)*
    Friday, January 24th, 6pm-9pm    

    $75/Member, Max 4

    This will be a great technique to add texture to your work with just using the torch! You will be learning to manipulate the metal in such a way as to create "hills and valleys" within the surface of the silver! This will be a bit challenging but highly rewarded in the difference of texture that you will learn how to apply.

  • Sand Casting

    January 25, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
    Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club, 3650 19 St NE #13, Calgary, AB T2E 6V2, Canada

    Sand Casting  
    Saturday, Jan 25th, 4:30pm-8:30pm    
    $95/Member, Max 4 

    Materials Kit $40

    This is a class to give you a little taste of casting. This is definitely one of the easier methods to set up in a home studio situation, but certainly still needs ventilation. We will be using the club's newly acquired oxygen concentrator to melt our metal! You will be challenged but excited at the possibilities! Members are encouraged to bring in their scrap silver to use for doing this casting, or there will also be kits available for purchase. 

    Please contact me directly at: merkury.metals@gmail.com to register.

    Bring in your solder free scrap sterling silver to make your ingot!

    Looking for a way to use up some of those pesky little scraps that aren't big enough to use for anything else? I will show you how to pour an ingot out of your scrap so that you can roll out your silver into a more useful form. We will be using the club's newly acquired oxygen concentrator to melt our metal! It will do the trick quite nicely. A very valuable skill to economize your maker toolbox.
