  • Slab Building Pottery with Flat Pattern Templates with Jeremy Randall July 10th, 1-3PM ET

    Slab Building Pottery with Flat Pattern Templates

    with Jeremy Randall
    Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
     
    July 10th, 2021 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
     
    Using a number of template-producing techniques, hand drawn, hand cut, and Cricut machine cut, we will explore the use of patternmaking in terms of building slab constructed pottery forms.  Using these same methods, we can also add texture and pattern to the surfaces of these forms making stencils and texture templates

  • Virtual Passports Workshop: Making Gold Wires with Giovanni Corvaja (Non-Member) July 18 10:00am-12:30pm ET 2021

    Virtual Passports Workshop: Making Gold Wires

    with Giovanni Corvaja
    Virtual One day Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
     
    July 18 | Time: 10:00a.m. - 12:30p.m. ET
     
    For me, transforming gold into an invisible fibre is an addictive process. It has started very simply with the curiosity of seeing how it is drawing down a piece of wire to the smallest hole of the draw plate and then, over the years finding a way to make thinner and thinner wires. I studied how it is done industrially, how those processes can be adapted to alloyed gold, platinum or silver, how, on a low budget, we can attain fibre in a small scale workshop. My research was driven both by the curiosity of making a new material and by the necessity, to attain that material to give shape to the objects that I had in mind.
    During the 2 and a half hour workshop I will explain, and show how to handle a long thin wire, I will tell about the main issues that one can find. I will explain how I overcame those problems and, out of the many solution which I found most suitable
    We will also talk about the advantages of making our own wire,  the differences between various materials (gold, silver, platinum and their alloys) we will talk about the tools, I will give some information on who can supply small draw-dies and think about the most cost effective equipment.
    Given the time and distance, I will mix live demonstrations with some pre-recorded short videos and slides. It will be an interactive workshop, questions are welcome.

  • Image transfer in Polymer clay with Lorena Lazard July 2 & 9, 2021 4:00 -6:00PM ET

    Image transfer in Polymer clay

    with Lorena Lazard 
    Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
     
    July 2 & 9, 2021 | 4:00 -6:00 PM ET
     
    In this workshop you will learn how to transfer images in polymer clay, using both solid and liquid clay.
    I will demonstrate several examples with different types of images that can be transferred. In this process we will use a toaster oven and an iron. You will also learn how to incorporate various materials to your images such as wire, textiles, sand, etc.
    Following the creative process, once the images have been transferred, you will learn how to intervene with markers, colors, acrylic paints, etc.
    Finally, we will be discussing how to use these images in jewelry pieces.

    DIGITAL CRAFT: SKETCHBOOK TO DIGITAL FILE TO VINYL CUTTER TO ALUMINUM ETCH

    Utilizing a vinyl cutter to create vinyl resists for aluminum etching.

    with Frankie Flood
    Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
     
    July 3 & 10, 2021 | 4:00 -6:00 PM ET
     
    Students will learn how to utilize the basic functions of vinyl cutting software to translate hand drawn designs from their sketchbook into digital files that can be cut on a vinyl cutter and then used for a vinyl resist for etching aluminum. The workshop will focus on basic methods for making the jump from the hand drawn to digital file, the use of a vinyl cutter, and how to transfer vinyl to aluminum for aluminum etching.  I will share a non-toxic etching solution for etching aluminum that is readily available using hardware store materials.  Participants will create lightweight surface embellished aluminum etchings that can be incorporated into jewelry designs.
