Chain Mail uses small jump rings to create jewelry. You will learn to make two copper bracelets in the weaves pictured above. Both weaves are adaptations of armor worn by medieval warriors.

This workshop will teach the basics of opening and closing jump rings and the fundamentals of making jewelry with unsoldered rings. Weaves will include, Byzantine and parallel. 

The instructor will supply all wire. The process of winding, cutting and polishing rings will be demonstrated. The only tools needed are two pairs of jewelry pliers - flat nose or bent nose. Bring your own or you may borrow from the instructor. An Optivisor or similar magnifying device will be very helpful. 
The supply fee covers two kits of copper jump rings with clasps plus handouts with tutorials and reference materials.

Bring a sack lunch and enjoy making two bracelets.

DISCOVERING YOUR HIDDEN ARTIST

Start - Jun 22nd, 2019 , Finish - Jun 22nd, 2019

Cost $95.00

Cost (NON MEMBERS) $95.00

Instructor Rachel Egosi

June 22nd from 10 to 4
$70 plus supply fee of $25

In this workshop students will learn to prepare different textures from familiar and unfamiliar materials on canvas before painting, and to create a special interest in the layers created by the use of different mediums, pasting of collages and finishing that comes from another dimension.
The workshops that I attend regularly have great success in inspiring and creating motivation for creative experimentation with practical art lovers, novice artists, veteran and experienced artists.

My method of teaching is spontaneous, which allows everyone to create without being a painter, and to be free and creative while work. The resulting work is surprising and exciting.
