METALS SUMMER SESSION 1
MAY 28–JUNE 2, 2023
We’ll explore the use of alternative materials—particularly concrete/cement—in jewelry and small metal objects. Students will learn to use color dyes in conjunction with concrete to create colorful pieces. We’ll use traditional and advanced mold-making techniques with 3D-printed materials. We’ll also cover sawing, soldering, the basics of jewelry-making, and other processes as we explore and create unique designs. All levels. No 3D printing experience needed. Upper metals studio.
