Patina and Pattern: Flameworking on the Creative Edge
June 3, 2018 – June 9, 2018
Going beyond the boundaries of traditional flameworking methods, students in this workshop discover new bead ideas from traditional and exotic materials and use them as a jumping off point to create their own unique works. Part of your investigation is how pattern, as stringer design, enhances these surface effects. Participants will investigate creative techniques for turning their beads into jewelry using metals and other materials. The focus is revelation and experimentation. Some flamework experience is required.
COURSE FEE: $595
