Kilnformed and Coldworked Jewelry with Jaclyn Harris

All Skill Levels 8-week Class

This class will focus on kilnformed and coldworked jewelry using small scale flat glass, frit, powder, and stringers. You will create individual jewelry components in the kilnforming studio to make cohesive sets with the guidance of instructor Jaclyn Harris. Among the many techniques that will be introduced are tack and full fuses, layering to create patterns, and designing shapes with metal findings. Then explore the cold shop to refine your work by engraving, beveling edges, and drilling holes to create wearable forms. Projects will consist of earrings, pendants, rings, and cohesive jewelry sets.

Class tuition includes 1 session of open-studio time per student to be used during the 8-week course period. This will help you become familiar with the studio itself and learn the process of studio rental beyond class hours.
