Prerequisite: Students that have taken our 201 course or equivalent- this class is for you!
Learn how to make your own mechanisms to fine-tune and elevate your designs. This class is designed to take your “out of the box ideas” and turn them into tangible work.
Students will practice:
- pin backs
- clasps and latches
- pressure fitting techniques
- pulleys and hinges
Students will kick off by talking about mechanisms and reviewing examples of conceptual art/jewelry that moves through a slide show of artists work. Once your creative juices are flowing, you will have time to work on your design as well as an individual consultation and critique by your instructor. Students will then unleash their concepts into metal and receive specific demos for any additional techniques required.
*Students are asked to bring in materials they may have for their desired projects. Other materials may be purchased through CSJA for an additional cost.
