NEW Jewelry; Draping hard metal on a soft body
June 14, 2014 - June 15, 2014
In this workshop, participants will investigate a spontaneous method for creating flowing, flexible neck pieces from carbon steel rod. The joy of working with hot carbon steel rod – that at the correct heat and for a moment is as flexible as bread dough – will be demonstrated and then experienced by the class. We will learn about combining multiple parts for a neck piece, finishing carbon steel for wearing and coloring carbon steel.
Please bring leather work gloves in a comfortable size, closed shoes, protective glasses, ear protection, a ball pien or claw hammer, and any pair of tongs or long pliers that grip well.
