Laser Welding Demo - Thursday 8th February morning session
Join me and the team from FreeForm Fabrication for a demo session to introduce you to the magic of the Dado Laser Welder.
This class is aimed at experienced makers and professional jewellers who want to speed up production, work on a wider range of metals or be able to take on a greater range of repairs and alterations.
During the workshop, their experienced instructors will cover a range of topics, including laser welding basics, advanced techniques and practices for using the DaDo laser welder. You will have a chance to work hands-on with the equipment and receive personalised instruction and guidance from our experts.
To get the best from the wokrshop and find out what a laser welder can do we encourage you to bring some of you own pieces to experiment with. The laser welder can be used on virtually any metal and as it only heats an area of 0.2mm it is safe to use along side gemstones, enamel, and other non-solderable materials.
