This workshop is an information packed compilation of goldsmith’s construction tricks and fast, sure procedures for building findings. A range of simple and complex hand-made findings and mechanisms are demonstrated and described. These will include pinbacks and basic hinges. The concept of relative fitting is emphasized. This results in more successful construction technique and technical problem solving skills than traditional ‘blueprint building’ approaches may offer. Production aids and bench tricks are discussed. There is a fair amount of lecture time in this intensive workshop-be prepared to take notes.
