Two Upcoming Workshops

It’s been awhile, but I have two workshops scheduled with the PA Guild of Craftsmen this winter. Both will be at their Center of American Craft in downtown Lancaster, PA.

Sherry was the only student to complete two pendants.  You can see the difference between the patinated one and the one left "natural."
Two pendants from Sherry, a student at my last RP workshop.

The first is my Rivet Pendant Workshop on December 14th from 10am – 4pm.

Ready to take your jewelry to a new level?

In this class you’ll learn how to add a raised layer to your metalwork using rivets. You can choose from a variety of patterns to create a two layer pendant using textured copper and brass – no torch necessary!

You’ll saw, file, and hammer your way to a beautiful pendant you can complete during class time. Learn a new technique and get a fabulous piece of jewelry you can wear home.

This workshop is $125.00 for non-members of the Guild. (Members get a 10% discount) and you can register online or by calling 717-431-8706

Look at all the undulation that Richelle formed.

The second is my Fold Forming Workshop on February 22nd, 2014 from 10a – 4pm.

Fold Forming is a technique where sheet metal is folded, worked, and then unfolded. Through this process, it is possible to quickly form the metal into gorgeous 3D shapes and textures. In this workshop, students will learn some of the basic folds using hammers, a torch, and vises. By the end of the day, each student will leave with at least one fold formed copper/brass cuff and a variety of samples.

This workshop is $115.00 for non-members of the Guild. (Members get a 10% discount) and you can register online or by calling 717-431-8706

If you wonder how I make my pieces, these two workshops will give you an inside look.

One thought on “Two Upcoming Workshops

  1. I really like the fold formed cuff that Richelle made in the upper left corner of the photo…I’d love to take the fold forming class, but you’re a long way from upstate NY…dam! One of these days, preferably in the summer.
