Lost And Found: Personal Adornment

June 30, 2019 – July 13, 2019

Robert Ebendorf

This workshop explores concepts applicable to personal adornment and the narrative object. Working with traditional and alternative materials including silver, copper, wire, recycled materials and found objects, students will create objects of personal expression. You will investigate the use of color and collage as a design tool. Through demonstrations, lectures and hands-on projects, participants discover methods of selection, integration and assembly inherent to these materials. There will be time for individual attention. Students must have basic sewing skills and soldering skills.
