New Approaches: Alternative Materials And Processes In Jewelry/Object Making
June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020
During this workshop students will explore various ways to incorporate alternative materials that complement their metal designs. This class is for those with an interest in adding new texture, color and movement into their work. Participants will gain a broader knowledge of working across various materials and develop a better understanding of how their decisions are reflected in the jewelry or objects they create. Class demonstrations include metal cold connections, mechanisms and attachments. Discussions center on how to work within material families such as woods, fibers, rubbers and plastics. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
