Jack da SilvaIn this two day workshop students will be divided into two groups. Group A will spend the day with Marilyn experimenting with non-traditional color exploration. Group B will spend the first day with jack as he demonstrates anticlastic and synclastic forming for jewelry. On day two, the groups will switch places and spend the day with the other da Silva. Marilyn and Jack have given this workshop across the country. It allows each participant to gain information on both techniques during the two days.
