Hello, my lovely peeps! I've been tapping, clicking, filming and working like a mad-woman developing a brand new online class for you and.....it's here! I present to you, The Alchemy of Objects. In this e-course I combine two of my passions: design and found objects. Alchemy is unlike any other class that I've offered and I'm thrilled to be teaching it.
Over the years that I've traveled to teach jewelry making classes, I've noticed that my students often struggle mightily with design. Design is such an important aspect of jewelry making...just as important as excellent technical skills. If your pieces just don't have that extra "something," if you find it difficult to put together a cohesive and pleasing piece, if you struggle with the vital priciples of design...this workshop is your new best friend.
One of the new things I've done in this course is to offer weekly "Design Challenge" videos. In these challenge videos, I take you through my design process, step by step and show you how to create well-designed, gorgeous jewelry...then challenge you with a specific design principle or element, to create your own piece. I'm so excited about the hands-on aspect of this idea and believe it will be a terrific teaching tool.
I've also got lots of techniques videos for you as well as videos showing you how to work with various found objects. There's just so much good stuff on the subjects of design and found objects, I wanted to cram as much in, as possible!
Class begins Sept. 15 and ends Nov. 30, which is over two months. I decided to allow a bit more time for this workshop because there are over 30 videos! If you'd like to see a complete class description or register for class, click here.
I would just love to help bring out the best in your design skills and help you incorporate those found object treasures into your work.
