In Kate's newest class she'll show you the tips and tricks to solder successfully every time. This class focuses on the use of solder paste in this traditional fabrication class. Kate demonstrates three different soldering techniques, soldering two flat pieces together, soldering a wire loop onto the pendants tops edge, and lastly soldering a stamped decorative bail. Once you've watched this class you'll be well on your way to soldering happiness!

This class has a run time of 100 minutes.

Kate is not only thorough in her demo on how to solder but also in her explanation of how and when to use the supplies and tools. She also answers any questions you may have that you didn't know to ask! I enjoyed her explanation of the different types of metals you can and shouldn't solder. Kate speaks in a patient and slow manner, which is pleasing to hear through out the class video. This class, I feel, will definitely set the standard for viewing for those wishing to take their jewelry skills to the next level by learning to solder. I wish this class existed when I first started. It would have made things a whole lot easier!!! Thanks to Kate Richbourg and to Beaducation.

Oh Kate, you've done I think again!!! This is the BEST class ever! I seriously felt like I was in a classroom or even a private tutoring session with you. You didn't miss a beat or leave out anything. Just when I thought I had a question, you immediately covered it with adding all the variables that might happen. This class was amazingly perfect. Wish I was closer to you because I would always want to take any of your classes or sessions you have at your studio. It's just a bit of a drive for me here in Mesa Arizona! All I can say is THANK YOU so much! Hugs to you. Oh, and I love your books too. They are either on or close to my bench!

As usual, Kate did a terrific job explaining all the steps to complete this soldering project. She makes a slightly intimidating process sound safe and doable and not intimidating after all. As one other reviewer said, Kate's video and teaching style makes you feel like she is sitting right next to you at your bench, encouraging you all the way. She even tells you what may go wrong and why and then how to fix it or avoid it in the first place.

Thanks Kate, for a great soldering experience!

Great class and well explained. I believe Kate covered everything needed to solder successfully. I learned a lot. However, "nonferrous" means not IRON-bearing instead of not LEAD-bearing as Kate stated.

Excellent. Well worth my time, and thank you Kate for your time and expertise in this wonderful area of metalworking, and putting it all together. Thank you also for your deep explanations of material and the extensive listing of tools used and where to buy. I have bookmarked you and will return again and again to watch and listen......until I get it, "Kate" right.

Thank you,

Kate as always is the best ever in her teaching methods, she is simple, and easy to follow along. Especially for the beginner Kate takes the fear and confusion out of soldering and teaches skills that are just amazing. Her knowledge and gentle teaching skills are remarkable. watching over and over again until perfection.

Thank you so much Kate!
