Metal Stamping & Jewelry Making
Dates: June 26-30 | 1 – 4pm
Materials: All materials will be provided!
* If you’d like your maker to take home a metal stamping starter kit so they can continue to stamp jewelry after camp, I can buy them one for an additional $35 and they can use that for camp. It will include a stamping hammer, metal bench block and a set of alphabet letter stamps. Otherwise, I’m happy to let them use my supplies for the week for no charge.
This camp is a hands-on craft course that will teach your young maker skills to make handmade jewelry using metal stamping! This is a co-ed class so jewelry options will include both masculine and feminine styles. For example when we make a necklace, they’ll be able to choose from more feminine metal shapes or a metal dog tag necklace.
Monday: We’ll learn about the tools you need to stamp metal and which types of metals are best for stamping. Then we’ll get hands-on and practice some stamping on different metals, learning about lettering & spacing.
Tuesday: We’ll practice our new skills & make a metal cuff bracelet & ring
Wednesday: We’ll learn about design stamps and make a metal stamped bookmark & key chain
Thursday: We’ll make a custom stamped leather bracelet
Friday: Mini Makers will choose their last projects for Friday. I’ll encourage them to make something they can give away as a special gift, but ultimately it’ll be their choice what they do with their handmade goodies!
