Foundations in Form and Color

This workshop will cover techniques that facilitate the development of a wide range of contemporary jewelry components. We’ll build a broad catalog of sculptural forms with methods including, but not limited to, sheet metal fabrication, brazing, and hydraulic forming. Enamel and powder coat will be our main color applications, and we’ll expand on these techniques throughout the workshop. We’ll focus on incorporating our creations into the brooch format, but students may also explore pendants, earrings, and other forms. We’ll cover several setting methods for traditional and nontraditional materials including prong, tab, and bezel settings along with fabricating findings for jewelry forms. Experimentation will be encouraged! All levels.

Powder coating is a terrific way to achieve uniform and long lasting color on the surface of metal. This virtual course will provide instruction on setting up powder coating for a home or shared studio and powder application using electrostatic spray deposition (ESD). Curriculum will cover setup and application methodology, tips on how to fabricate for the process, and surface altering techniques.
