Culling The Sand: Site, Place and Identity
August 12, 2018 – August 18, 2018
Is there something to be gained today from looking at the way contemporary jewelry responds to place? In this workshop students investigate their shared and individual relationships to site, place and personal identity with the intention of creating works made to be worn on the body. Students will conduct site-specific investigations and create material samples to later introduce them into the format of jewelry. Techniques introduced include color on metal, fold forming, silicone mold making and plastic casting. Open to all skill levels, however introductory metals techniques preferred.
COURSE FEE: $525
