This special workshop introduces students of all levels to pattern and texture as a vital element of jewelry design. Learn how to combine etching with roller embossing, stamping, and solder inlay!

Day One
will focus on making re-usable plates to texture metal through the rolling mill. The PNP etching system allows one to use photos, xerox images or drawings as texture and transfer it to sheet metal. Students can
make unique and personal imagery for their jewelry and metalwork on sterling or non-precious metals.

Day Two will combine the PNP system with roller embossing, stamping, and solder inlay and Keumboo. Students will be encouraged to make samples and experiment with incorporating these techniques into their own jewelry.

Students should bring their own hand tools and a variety of sheet metal and wire. Extra sheet metal and wire will also be available for sale during the workshop.

Upon registration a specific class tool list will be sent to students via email. A lab fee (to be announced) will also be charged to cover the cost of chemicals and supplies. Extra sheet metal and wire are not covered in the lab fee.
