METALSMITHING ILLUSTRATED

These simple illustrations (drawn by Benches’ instructor Jeremiah) will help you understand the basic principles and processes of metalsmithing techniques and tools . They make the most sense in our native studio environment alongside with our curriculum.

However, they are also very helpful for the beginning metalsmith working from home.

The illustrations in this collection are preliminary.
