November 20, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm | $15 - $30
Learn to design and create your own custom brass box latch… transforming a piece of brass sheet metal and wire into a beautiful locking closure for any wooden box.
Increase the artistic quality of your handcrafted boxes with a custom made metal latch. Learn the basic design of a hinged brass closure with a loop for locking. This will be a no soldering project… using cold connections, such as rivets, for the construction. You will have a completed project by the end of class. No experience necessary. All supplies and tools will be provided. Come and have fun with us!
