Metalwork and Jewellery

In metalwork classes, students learned a variety of skills including piercing, etching, soldering, stone setting and enameling with silver and copper. Products from these classes included jewellery, boxes, bowls, cutlery, candleholders, and more. Students would reproduce their two-dimensional patterns and designs onto silver and copper.
