Metals B Summer Session 7

Metals Summer Session 7
August 14–19
Rachelle Thiewes
The Moving Canvas

The focus of this workshop is the relationship between jewelry and the human body. Movement, light, color, scale, line, form, weight, and anatomy are some of the essential elements that we’ll explore through short exercises. We’ll build concepts through personal interest and experience. The workshop will incorporate technical demonstrations focused on easy solutions, shortcuts, and tricks for fabricating and soldering metal. The goal is for students to leave with a fresh perspective, new possibilities, and some technical solutions that can be applied to their jewelry making. All levels. Lower metals studio.
