Silver soldering or “Hard Soldering” is an art form but it’s an art form that anyone can learn with a little practice.
This is a metal-joining process whereby a filler metal is heated above and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts. The filler metal is brought slightly above its melting temperature while protected by a suitable atmosphere, usually a flux. It then flows over the base metal and is then cooled to join the workpieces together. It is similar to soft soldering (used in electronica), except the temperatures used to melt the filler metal is much higher.
You can use this technique for making small metal parts for hardware projects or just to make some cool jewellery for yourself or your girlfriend.
To get an idea what we will do check [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhShzcUbc40&feature=related this video]
If people want to use silver as a basic material, I will provide some sheets and wire. It can be bought for 1€ per gram (this is not included in the 5€ material cost for the workshop)
