Workshop Overview

There is making jewelry and then there is creating objects that present your creativity and story to the world – this workshop is for those seeking the latter. Through daily studio rituals such as journaling, mini-design challenges and play students in this workshop will explore and share their story through content curation. Anything can, and will be, used as material. Stories will be developed through making jewelry, objects and clothing, styled photoshoots and recorded audio. Students should come ready to connect themselves to their work and relinquish all expectations of what they will produce. This is not a beginner-level class, but open to advanced-intermediate to advanced-skill levels.
