Increase Your Design Vocabulary and move into new creative territory. This workshop addresses design through a series of creative exercises involving paper, metal, and found objects. A portion of class time will focus on your individual needs—bring any projects to use as a basis for your new ideas. Challenge yourself out of your comfort zone. You’ll learn how to confidently resolve your, "I’ve been thinking about this but I’m not sure where to take it" moments, and leave with an increased ability to design the jewelry you want to make. All levels.
