Designing with Pattern

with Raissa Bump
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
June 5 & 12, 2021 | Time: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. ET
Our primary focus so often has to be on technique and execution; this class is an opportunity to take time to have fun with the design process itself. Using accessible at home, mostly analog, hands-on design and development methods that translate well to basic sheet metal fabrication, we’ll experiment with scale, layout, proportion, manipulation etc. to incorporate pattern in your jewelry. Paper models will be first, then metal samples, and finally to the design and decision making process of creating a wearable piece of jewelry showcasing your chosen pattern. Whether you respond to organic forms or geometric structure, your personal inspirations will be your starting point.
