Gluetastis! -Cold Connections for Mixed Materials

with  Märta Mattsson
Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
March 27, 2021 | 1:00-3:30 p.m. ET 
I use different kinds of epoxy glue in every single piece that I create and it is my one favorite material. I started out as a traditional silversmith but over my twenty year long practice of making jewelry I have always had a massive interest in working with mixed materials. Since I create wearable pieces made from materials like insects, resin, stone, metals, fabric, seashells and silicone I have figured out many ways of connecting materials through chemically bonding them without the need of adding any heat. In this workshop I will show you how to use epoxy glue in unexpected ways. It is a perfect material for creating cold connections for mixed media but also for casting, encrusting, coloring and repairs. I will share all the little tricks that I know and show demos on the different ways I use glue in my work. I will also demonstrate how to attach metal brooch backs, chain and earring posts to alternative materials.
