The rolling mill is a piece of equipment that can immediately increase the possibilities and potential of your studio. In this workshop, we will discuss various rolling mills, operations, maintenance, creating texture, and more.   

Demonstrations will include a variety of ways to use the rolling mill to customize your designs with texture, pattern, and changing the profiles of the metal.

Students will become more informed consumers and the options available to them before making a purchase of equipment. They will be able to judge which mill is right for their studio needs, how to maintain it, and how to get the most out of the mill.

Prerequisite: Beginning Jewelry/Metals.

Textures

Metal

  • Copper sheet. 16-20ga are the best way to practice. You can get sheets of copper from most hardware stores. K&S Metal Co. usually has a display with several metal sheets to choose from.
  • Sterling sheet. A small piece of silver is nice to practice your techniques. The width and gauge are optional depending on how you want to work and if you plan to use it for a finished piece. I’d recommend something between 16-20g.
