Metals – Special Session
May 9-15, 2021
Anna Johnson
Setting the Tone

In this workshop, students will develop metalsmithing skills with an emphasis on setting found objects and creative thinking. We’ll build a solid foundation in soldering, sawing, joining, setting, and finishing throughout the week, and we’ll throw out the rule book on designing jewelry and small objects. By formulating our own solutions, we’ll learn to trust our intuition and set the tone for an innovative studio practice. Students can plan on leaving with multiple pieces and exciting ideas to bring to future projects. All levels. Lower metals studio.
