Electroforming: Good Vibrations
SATURDAY DECEMBER 8th 11AM-2PM

In this three-hour class you will discover the potential for producing lightweight metal creations and take away skills for high production in your art & jewelry design practice.  Class time will include the step-by-step process of electroforming organic and non-organic materials. Time will be given to create and construct a ring or pendant. Because of the length of time it takes to electroform a piece (approx. 6-8 hours) students can pick up their work 3-5 days after class.

Mixed Media Painting Workshop
SATURDAY DECEMBER 15th 9AM-12PM

Explore mixed media painting techniques and create beautiful gifts of art, just in time for the holidays.

You’ll be provided with a cradled wood panel on which to create your painting (9x12 inches), as well as all necessary materials. If you have your own acrylic paint or some paint brushes you’d like to bring, please do. I’ll also provide some handmade papers and collage elements to incorporate into your work if you choose.

Instruction will be given on a few techniques, and some finished examples will be available to look at as we dive into mixed media painting together. Create something to gift to someone else, or just enjoy it for yourself. Hope to see you there!
