Fantastic Forming: Saturday & Sunday, June 23 & 24, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
This workshop will explore "anticlastic raising" as a means of transforming flat sheet metal into dynamic, fluid forms, ideally suited for jewelry and small sculpture. With the aid of specialized hammers and stakes, you will learn how to strategically stretch and compress thin sheet metal into highly dimensional, lightweight forms that are surprisingly strong and flexible.
-Cost: $207 (per course)
-Jewelry Supply & Lab Fee: $30

Sandcasting for Jewelry & Small Sculpture: Thursday & Friday, July 5 & 6, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sandcasting is a useful and quick technique for creating jewelry and small sculpture. Unlike other casting methods, sandcasting often requires less than an hour from idea to completion, is ideal for producing multiples, and requires little in the way of specialized equipment. In fact, most of the necessary tools can be made DIY in the studio (as you will see!).
-Cost: $207 (per coures)
-Jewelry Supply & Lab Fee: $30

Glass on Metal: An Introduction to Enameling: Wednesday & Thursday, July 11 & 12, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Students will learn basic enameling techniques, including proper preparation and firing methods to assure color quality and clarity. Combining multiple layers of color, using under-glazes, enamel threads and foils are just some of the possibilities! On day two, you will be able to incorporate your enamels into a finished piece of jewelry. If you have previously attended an enameling class at the Hui, more advanced instruction (i.e. cloisonné and plique a jour) may be arranged. Basic jewelry experience (drilling, piercing and filing) is recommended, but not required. 
-Cost: $207 (per course)
-Jewelry Supply & Lab Fee: $30
