Hollow Forms: Create 4 projects in 5 days! 

Two beads and two rings will be taught, each involving different types of fabrication skills. Making a bead, you will learn to use dapping tools, form wires to fit a curved surface and patterning for proper alignment for a more “finished” design. Projects will feature your individual pattern layout, enhancing your surface fusing and embellishment skills. Completing the projects you will leave class with confidence and exquisitely finished pieces.

The final day of class includes a one on one review with the instructor to show how to finish to a level of excellence. Often the seemingly minute but fine details can take a piece from "good" to “show quality”. You may bring 18k gold or higher karat to add to rings.  

Special note: If you are taking any portion of the Argentium Series, there will be an additional one-time charge of $25 for a 
block. If you have one, feel free to bring it to class with you.
