Jewelry Pas de Deux

Sat. 1 Sep, 2012 8:00 am - Sat. 8 Sep, 2012 8:00 am
This workshop combines two of Jeff’s most sought-after jewelry techniques into one class.  The goal of the class is to equip each student with a working knowledge of the techniques to allow them to design and create their own unique works of art. Miniature Hollowware The first technique explores making miniature hollowware pieces by constructing original form/molds over which we will fabricate small hollowware pieces with veneers of clay.  After curing, the form/molds are removed and pieces reassembled.  Next, the pieces are sanded and refined and finish veneer layers are applied and cured one at a time.  Finishing techniques and various surface ornamentation options will be demonstrated and applied. Reinforced Armatures This technique uses a variety of materials to create strong armatures over which polymer clay is applied, sculpted and cured in multiple stages.  When armatures are completed the pieces are sanded and refined and finish veneer layers are applied and cured one at a time.  Finishing techniques and various surface ornamentation options will be demonstrated and applied. When combined, these techniques afford the artist an infinite array of possibilities in polymer clay.  While the class will use specific exercises to teach the skills required, this is not a project class and individuality and personal creativity will be encouraged. While this is an intermediate/advanced class, a limited number of beginners will be admitted with instructor’s approval.  Beginners with a history of working with various other media and a comfort level exploring new materials will be the best candidates for this class. The instructor has explored a wide range of work with these techniques and will show a variety of pieces to illustrate the possibilities.  A sampling of work will also be on exhibition during the class and a limited number of pieces available for purchase If you’re curious, adventurous, enjoy a good time, and are up to a challenge, join us for a Jewelry Pas de Deux. Cost: $1,950/person includes: •            Double occupancy room (seven nights) •            7 Breakfasts / 6 Lunches / 6 Dinners (Lunch and dinner prepared by chef Nese) •            Days filled with class time, open studio plus local excursions Price does not include airfare, shared rental car, or off site meals

A Happy Week of Creativity in the South of France

Tue. 11 Sep, 2012 8:00 am - Wed. 19 Sep, 2012 9:00 am
Join Ronna in this adventure in creativity. We will create art using a variety of mediums and techniques. You may want to create art jewelry, you may want to create small vessels or containers, you may want to create and write in a handcrafted journal … or do all of the above. This will be a week of creating and collaboration in which we take our art seriously while never, ever taking ourselves too seriously. Design principals will also be explored, since a better understanding of design makes our art better. Since our cook, Nese, is a magical, nurturing sprite whose gifts are too profound not to be shared, and food is part of the pleasure of La Cascade, we will also have a couple cooking lessons from her. I don’t know how Nese manages to feed us so abundantly and deliciously and yet we don’t gain a pound, but I look forward to capturing some of that magic to bring back home. We will also have field trips to local impossibly charming places. Why go to the South of France and not indulge yourself in the magic of the South of France? For those who feel that the only thing as much fun as creating is shopping for cool things to use creatively, please join me on the optional “Pre-La Cascade Gala Paris Shopping Trip.” We will spend a few days in Paris, going into little out-of-the-way shops to buy this and that ribbon or bead or found object to use as we create our little treasures, and then we will all make our way together to the charming, magical world of La Cascade.
