Metals A Summer Session 2

Metals Summer Session 2
June 6-17, 2021
Lauren Markley
Fabrication for Sculptural Jewelry

Taking a structural approach to jewelry, we’ll explore 3-D forms to create wearable sculpture. We’ll work through a number of fabrication techniques—including hollow construction, spliced construction, and scoring and folding—improving soldering skills along the way. There will be daily demonstrations, and class projects will present opportunities to hone sequencing and problem-solving skills. Time permitting, we’ll also touch on surface treatments and the use of alternative materials. Students should come away with many samples and a few finished pieces. All levels. Upper metals studio.
