Ce que vous allez faire
Each jewelry making class will focus on a specific skill such as hammering. Each student will have 3 pairs of pliers &/or a hammer, a bead mat, and the table will have metal findings, wire, and lots of beads to choose from. I will start with introductions, show examples of the jewelry we will make, give an overview of the tools in front of them and do a brief demo. Then I will introduce student's to various materials options and encourage them to experiment with design choices. I will support participants to play with various design options and instruct them on details to consider with certain materials (shape, color, and size). Once everyone has a plan A for their first design, I will give them step-by-step instructions on how to hammer their first piece, their second piece and how to finish them off. Students usually try on the work after they make it. I often have them make 2 different designs, doing parts of the process on their own with support when needed, though some students need step by step the second time around.
An Asheville area based jewelry artist since 20013, I've taught classes to dozens of visitors and locals. A "retired" English instructor, I've translated my teaching skills into the craft world to give students a fun, engaging, and memorable experience. These classes not only give you jewelry of your own design to take with you, but a lasting memory of a craft experience set in a lovely art gallery with over 40 artists represented.
Ce qui est inclus
All tools (hammers, metal plate, and/or various pliers) and materials (beads, wire, findings, etc.) are provided.
My studio is inside of Artisans on Main Gallery in Weaverville, NC. This gallery has over 40 local artists represented and 4 working studios. I'll set up a work station of tables and chairs in the middle of the studio after hours where participants will have a comfortable working environment among a collection of handmade lamps.
