The hydraulic press is an awesome tool with so many possibilities. In this workshop we will cover the basics of designing and making matrix dies, a variety of texture techniques as well as discussing some unconventional ways to create pieces using the press. The project will be to create two pieces (rings, pendants, brooch, etc) that are very different while using the same die. We will discuss putting our tools to the best uses as well as finding cool tools in unexpected places. Basic soldering skills are required.
