In this workshop, students will be introduced to alternative materials in jewelry and small object making. Our main focus will be concrete/cement in conjunction with color dyes to create colorful pieces. We will explore these materials using traditional and advanced mold making techniques. Mold making and problem-solving using 3D printed materials will be implemented and used to help create unique designs. The Jim and Lois Richmond Fund subsidizes all of our visiting artist workshops.

Whether you are looking to create a statement copper backsplash, add color to a metal sculpture, or enhance a jewelry design, patinas can create a dramatic impact. In this sampling workshop, explore various ways of getting blue and black patinas with commercial and household products on copper and brass. Once students have achieved the desired coloration, we will cover how to seal each patina for a long lasting finish. All materials provided.
