ARU/CFT 546 JEWELRY THAT GROWS ON TREES
June 16 – 27, 2014
Do you aim to make unique and meaningful jewelry? Consider adding wood to your repertoire! This beautiful, versatile, and affordable material is ideal for experimenting with both techniques and concepts. Using found and commercial wood and low-tech tools, we will investigate a wide range of topics including fabrication, veneering, hand carving, stone setting and finishing techniques. Metal wire forging and manipulation will be introduced as a mean of connecting the wooden elements. Additional exercises and critiques will guide each student toward developing personal content and style.
