Folded, Formed, and Set! with Jennie DiBeneditto
October 29, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Date: Saturday, October 29, 2022
Description: Hammer your heart out as we manipulate copper into intriguing dimensional shapes, coat them in enamel, and set them in custom copper settings. We will explore creating patterns made through fold forming, enameling on a dimensional surface, and designing a custom setting for your enameled piece. Finished pieces can be made into a brooch, pendant, or a combination of both through cold connection techniques.
Experience using a jewelers saw is recommended. No enameling experience necessary.
Tuition: $95 + $25 materials fee
Materials: All materials will be provided. Students will go home with a completed brooch or pendant.
