You do not have to live without the tool you need. In this money-saving and skill-building workshop, learn to make exactly what you want and need with master tool maker Bill Dawson. Students will explore working with steel to make several simple tools including a scribe, chasing punch and other decorative punches, while gaining the skills to create, alter and customize a range of tools both for the jewelry shop and general use. This course will cover the shaping, hardening and finishing of steel tools, as well as tool design and the making of nonferrous tools. Learning these skills will provide the artist with a whole range of options, allowing him or her to create or alter tools to suit the task at hand. No experience necessary.
