GETTING ATTACHED: Rivets Revealed!

FIVE HOURS of detailed and entertaining information!

If you're in the habit of reaching for glue when putting things together, prepare yourself for a game-changer! 

Join international "stuffsmith" Keith Lo Bue for his newest video workshop extravaganza, Getting Attached: Rivets Revealed. From the comfort of your own home you'll virtually visit Studio Stuffsmith in Sydney and let Keith guide you through a score of methods to create one-of-a-kind connections that are not only stronger and more permanent than any glue, but are beautiful and elegant visual additions to your art.

Whether you are making jewelry, sculpture or even fixing a broken object, there will be a rivet method aligned perfectly to your needs. And you'll be amazed at the range of materials that can be riveted: metal, wood, plastic – and even glass, ceramic, paper and stone! No previous metalworking experience is necessary to create these amazing connections.

Filled with Keith's unorthodox but common sense variations on traditional techniques, Getting Attached will show you in step-by-step close-up detail how to create:

• Standard "double-headed nail" type rivets

• Ball-head rivets

• Flush and blind rivets

• “Soft” rivets for fragile materials

• Tube rivets

• Mechanical rivets

Continuing Lo Bue's tradition of explaining the “why” as well as the “how”, you'll gain new insight and understanding into the materials you use in your creative endeavours. Plus his usual bevy of time-saving tips and tricks will have you rivet-ready and raring to go in no time.

So put the glue away for a rainy day and endow your artwork with the strength, beauty and depth that only a rivet can provide!


“I just watched part 1 of intro to riveting.  I am thrilled.  Fantastic.  I have learned important things I have never seen before that will surely make a difference in my ability to rivet.  You seemed to have addressed all those small problems that make learning to make a good rivet hard.  Thanks so much.  I know this is going to be a great class.” – M.
