Upcoming Workshops in Pittsburgh

I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach two workshops at the Society of Contemporary Crafts in Pittsburgh, PA this March.

On Saturday March 3rd 9-4:45 -

Make two projects: a riveted metal and felt pendant and a jewelry scale sculptural form with metal wire to contain needle felt. Using basic soldering and cold connections like rivets and tabs, this class will examine various approaches to combining 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional felt with metals. Wet and needle felting techniques covered will include: use of pre-felts, inlay, blending, surface effects.

On Sunday March 4th 9-4:45 -

Basic metal working skills can add structural strength and visual interest to needle felted jewelry. This class will cover metal processes such as sawing, drilling, dapping and wire forming to create beads with metal end caps and earrings with french hooks. Needle felting topics will include:  material selection, forming and fulling shapes, laying down color, blending, surface effects.
