Windows of Nature: Textual Forms, Creative Patterning and Bi-Metals
June 23, 2019 – June 29, 2019
Juan Carlos Caballero-Perez
During this workshop students create jewelry and metal objects, utilizing the frame as a metaphor for design purposes. You will explore various surfaces and texturing techniques for your creation. Participants will utilize thin metal sheet and fine gauge wire to focus on roll-printing, hammer texturing, chase and stamping, fire texturing and the use of the flex-shaft as a texturing device. You will use finishing techniques to complete your design. Demonstrations include surface texturing in copper, fine and sterling silver, and bi-metal. Scoring and folding techniques will be used for the construction of 3D metal forms. Working in gold is optional. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
