Learn how easy it is to anneal metal! Annealing is an important metalsmithing technique that softens metal when it becomes work-hardened. Kate demonstrates how to use a butane torch to anneal a variety of metals in this free class.

This class has a running time of 32 minutes.

Kate does a nice job on these videos. I would have liked to have seen information included on annealing, pickling and bright-dipping brass and nickel-silver, as well as the copper and silver. I use the former two metals because I like larger jewelry pieces, and gold and silver are financially out of the question.
Thanks for these resources.

I've watched several of Kate's videos and always enjoy them. She's direct and to the point, she is truly knowledgeable and manages to transmit her confidence into her videos. I've looked into a whole new craft (for me) and her videos truly help me to realize that I too, can do the things she is presenting. Thanks so much for sharing yourself with us.

Very informative! Kate does a great job teaching. I now know how to anneal but also know the "why" annealing is useful and helpful in the jewelry making process. I have learned so much from all of the Beaducation videos I have watched.
Many thanks for sharing.
