Fitting & Forging: Wearable Bustiers & Chest Pieces

This workshop is about designing and forging wearable elements that fit on your chest, neck, and torso: bustiers, necklaces, or chest pieces. Techniques will include designing and forging symmetrical pieces that fit the body and forming and shaping sheet metal for that extra lift! We’ll cover leather and riveting techniques that can be used as a form of attachment so your pieces will be beautiful and functional. Some experience will be a plus, but this workshop is open to all levels. Code 03I
