Memphis Botanic Garden says
Have you learned to love your jeweler’s saw?

n this workshop, students will learn all the ins and outs of one of the most basic and useful of jeweler's tools, which, incidentally, is also one of the most hated. Students will learn about proper blade loading, which saw blades to use, how different materials respond, how to mark material for sawing, inside cuts and more.

There will be a variety of saws on hand to try, including the Knew Concepts saw, which has helped turn many an anti-jewelers-saw person into a sawing master!

Projects for the class will be mostly about learning how to use the saw and will be technique based, however, there will be a small pendant project that students may complete in class or at home, depending on the speed at which they work, and practice pieces can be turned into charms.

If you do NOT have a jewelers saw and bench pin, PLEASE let us know when you sign up for the class. Neither tool is required to take this class, but the instructor needs an accurate count of how many to bring.

Blades, practice pieces, and templates are provided, and you will have a reference handout chock full of useful information to take home. We will be using twist drill bits, center punches, scribers, sharpies, burlife/beeswax, and adhesive in class. You are welcome to bring your own if you have these; some will be shared in class. Some tools and extra materials will be available for purchase at class as well.

MBG Members $60/non-members $75. Call 901-636-4128 for more information or to register.
