In this class you will learn how to make a box clasp. You will be taken through the fabrication process step by step to a completed independent clasp that can be customised to suit your project.
The versatility of this fastening means you can use the closure as a centre piece or concealed within the design.
This is a technical exercise perfect for honing your precision skills as it requires precise measuring, cutting, filing and soldering.
At the end of the class you will have a completed box clasp and a good understanding of the mechanism enabling you to design your own closures for a variety of projects including necklaces, lockets, boxes and hinged bracelets.
Sundries such as solder and saw blades are included in the course fees. Metals, findings and a variety of stones are available for purchase at the school or feel free to bring your own to work with.
Suitable for Proficient level students.
We take half an hour for lunch around 1pm, packed lunches are advised and can be eaten at the studio. Tea and coffee provided throughout the day.
