Joe Silvera & Making Your Own Tools Class

March 11th, 2012 by Aisha

A few weeks ago I drove up to Berkeley to take a class with Joe Silvera. Joe and his wife Anat teach a variety of classes out of their studio and I had been meaning to take a class with them for over a year. This one day class covered shaping and finishing hammer faces and making your own steel stamps. I use a large variety of hammers and have always wanted to make my own steel stamps so I was SUPER excited to take this class! Joe is a wonderful teacher and truly knows his stuff. I left the class with a great understanding and excited to take the knowledge and push it further. Joe teaches all over the country and also wrote a book called Soldering Made Easy that covers the basics of soldering for jewelry making. And, for those of us who like to see what we’re learning in action there are also DVDs. If you make jewelry and are looking to expand your knowledge I would sign up for a class with Joe and Anat Silvera a.s.a.p.!

    This is a wonderful idea. I wish I could have taken the class. I have been wanting to try something like this with some old tools myself and this has inspired me to try.
