Virtual Studio Tours and Demo Series

April 2021 Demo

  • We learned to measure, and measure again.

  • We learned to draw tubing and wire down.

  • We learned how to use a tap and die tool.

  • We learned to use a caliper.

  • We learned to fit multiple parts exactly.

  • We learned how to wet pack and sift enamel.

In an effort to fill the huge void our cancelled workshops has created, we have started a series of member Studio Tours and Technique Demos. Here are the tours we have hosted so far. We are doing our best to stay in touch while staying apart. Stay healthy.
