Upcoming Jewelry/Metal Arts Classes
Jewelry/Metal Arts Department
Instructor: Carol Warner
Explore chemical free approaches to patinas, using materials that are non-toxic and permanent. They can be mixed and matched to produce exact, exciting color outcomes. Students will produce a large array of experiments which will serve as examples for future reference. You will come away with the knowledge and confidence to personalize your future work in this manner.
As time permits Carol will share her knowledge of design and color theory. Class participants can choose to focus solely on this patina process or simultaneously combine coloration investigations with a creative metal project to take home. Students who opt to make a metal piece should plan to use familiar metalsmithing skills in order to reserve the majority of class time for exploring color techniques. Bringing completed works or found objects for experiments is another option that will help you make the most of your time and come away with finished pieces. Class participants will leave with samples and metal objects to serve as references for future use of Carol’s Color on Metal method, but most importantly they will take away a far-reaching command of color theory and application techniques that will last a lifetime.
The Susan E. Wood Jewelry Studio is available for use for a fee the days following your workshop should you like to continue practicing new skills or finish projects started in class. For more details or to schedule extra workdays, please contact Nancy Gardner, Jewelry/Metal Arts Coordinator.
