Learn how to design, fabricate and finish an irregularly shaped container of your own design complete with a tightly fitted lid. The materials used will be brass, copper, and/or sterling silver.The size of this container should be kept relatively small, approximately 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches due to our time restraints. Some students may wish to create more than one container while others may wish to create a hinge for the lid.

BIO: Fred Zweig is a self-taught metalsmith practicing since the early 1970s. He has been involved with teaching others for nearly 30 years and has a sincere passion for the process of metalworking and all of it's traditions and possibilities.

His desire to give homage to those who proceeded him and his desire for information have led him to moderate several historical metal forums including the Society of American Silversmiths and Society of Arts & Crafts website.

A creative innovator of materials and tools to create unique designs, Fred has attended and assisted in many workshops in metal and other media. He is currently involved in forging neck collars for retailers and producing a line of unique pins and pendants using techniques he has developed. Teaching is a natural extension of his desire to share with others what he knows which falls into his desire to "Show and Tell".
