The Expressive Jeweler-Inspiration to Manifestation
With Lesley Aine McKeown
December 1 – 4 10:00am – 5:30pm
This class is not project based, it’s about what is personal to you. All art begins with inspiration. In this class we will begin by looking at how what you see and how you feel influences your work and how to use design principles to create jewelry that is your voice not someone else’s. You will be encouraged to push yourself and design a piece outside your comfort zone. You will be guided to explore techniques you have not used before. It will be hard, but it will also set you free!
What you will learn: Design principles, drawing your design, incorporating stones, alternate stone setting, advanced soldering techniques, complex design construction, fabrication: hollow-forms, fold-forms, shell forms, chasing, scoring and more.Sign up here!
