bob4mixedmediafibula.jpgThis workshop will explore a wide range of concepts applicable to personal adornment and the narrative object. Working with traditional and alternative materials – silver, copper, wire, recycled materials, found objects – students will fashion objects of personal importance, expression, and adornment. Participants will investigate the use of color and collage as a design tool. Through demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on projects, students will discover the methods of selection, integration, and assembly inherent to this limitless range of materials.
