    This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

    Do you have a photo, drawing, or other sample of a texture or pattern that you want to use in your work but need a way to transfer it to your metal? To create patterns that are unique to your work, you can use the laser cutter to engrave paper with designs from your image files. Later, you can use the textured paper to transfer the pattern onto metal using a rolling mill. (You will not be embossing the metal in this class.)

    ·         What types of designs work well with the laser cutter

    ·         Which types of image files work with the laser cutter software

    ·         Which settings to use in Inkscape and RetinaEngrave 3D

    ·         What types of paper to use

    You will be able to laser cut several samples using image files and paper provided by the teacher.

    Details:

    • Prerequisite: Students must have taken the Intro to the Laser Cutter class offered by the Electronic & Technical Arts studio. There is an Intro to Laser Cutter on Saturday, February 15th (click here to register) from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM.

    • There is a $10 materials fee included in the price of class.


    Instructor Bio:

    Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994, when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software. What she discovered was a medium that not only utilized her previous training in painting, printmaking, and ceramics, but also opened the possibilities of creating art that can be worn.

    Family artifacts and history, plants and animals, and the textiles and jewelry of non-Western cultures inspire her current work, which Hammond executes using the techniques of chasing and repoussé. Her long-time interest in Asian art, which deepened when she studied calligraphy and tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan, continues to influence her aesthetics and sense of design.

    Ongoing casting for Certificate of Craft Program Students Only.

    What To Expect:

    Session 1, we will be investing, so come with your pieces sprued, weighed (don't forget to record your wax weight & bring it) and attached to the sprue base, so we can jump right in.  Don’t plan on there being time to sprue your work during this time.  If you have any concerns or would like some advice on spruing, come to open studio on Monday or Friday.  We have set aside a locker where you can leave your sprued flask if you so choose. During investing, we’ll have time to make some last minute adjustments and weigh our metals.  When everyone's done investing we’ll clean up and figure out the pouring order for the next morning.  You're welcome to stay to help load the kiln for its’ overnight burn. 

    Session 2, come with appropriate casting wear (& hair up).  After a review of the days plan we will get everything ready for the pour.  Teams of 2 people will take turns casting until we finish. When all of the flasks are poured everyone can help clean up and show off their work!!


    • Please wear closed-toed shoes and long pants to the casting day. Non-flammable natural fiber is best. Please bring something to tie back loose hair and don’t wear loose draping clothing.  
    • We have dust masks, safety glasses and gloves that you can use, but feel free to bring your own.

    Every tiny precious object deserves a beautiful locket to keep it safe, a locket that opens smoothly on well-constructed hinges and closes with a satisfying snap of the clasp. We'll build such containers in this class, starting with roll-printing to decorate the locket case, followed by demos and discussion of the infinitely variable intricacies of constructing lockets, hinges, and catches. 


    Details:

    • This is an intermediate level class. You should be able to solder on your own.
    • $20 materials fee is included in tuition.
    • Please wear closed-toe shoes. Wear hearing protectors when warranted and safety glasses; bring your own or use BARN's. Tie back long hair. Avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry; roll up sleeves.

    • Please bring a bag lunch. BARN has a refrigerator to store your lunch, located on the lower level.


    Instructor: Julia Lowther Growing up in Monteverde, Costa Rica, my hands were always busy with embroidery, crochet, weaving, and other fiber arts. I moved to Seattle in 1996, discovered metal, and quickly gravitated to chains -- an appealing transformation of stiff, unruly wire into flexible structures of satisfying weight. The manual dexterity gained from decades of needlework translated neatly to working at a jewelry scale. I believe the craft arts have immense value. They are the best and finest expressions of the alliance between our big brains and our opposable thumbs. Fine craft is living art, coming down off the walls, taking to the streets, making every day artful and special, and inviting people to join the community and become makers themselves.

    Instructor Bio:

    Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994, when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software. What she discovered was a medium that not only utilized her previous training in painting, printmaking, and ceramics, but also opened the possibilities of creating art that can be worn.

    Family artifacts and history, plants and animals, and the textiles and jewelry of non-Western cultures inspire her current work, which Hammond executes using the techniques of chasing and repoussé. Her long-time interest in Asian art, which deepened when she studied calligraphy and tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan, continues to influence her aesthetics and sense of design.

    Using the rolling mill is a fast way to impress a pattern into metal. The highs and lows of the textured surface reflect light in ways that enhance the design of your jewelry. You can further accentuate the pattern by patinating the piece with liver of sulfur or other chemical solution. To create gradients of the patinated color, gently remove the patina on the higher portions and leave the deeper parts dark.  


    Students will learn how to create textures using: 

    • Natural and manmade materials
    • Cut paper
    • Texture paper
    • Steel texturing plates

    Students will be able to create samples of textures using all of the methods listed above.


    Details:

    • This is a beginning / intermediate level class.  Students should know how to saw, pierce, drill, anneal, and file metal. Riveting and soldering skills will be helpful but not necessary.
    • $15 materials fee is included in the class tuition.
    • Please wear closed-toe shoes. Wear hearing protectors when warranted and safety glasses; bring your own or use BARN's. Tie back long hair. Avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry; roll up sleeves.
    • Students should bring:
    Pen, notebook, fine-point Sharpie or other pen that writes on metal

    Optional: testures to run through the rolling mill

    If you want to work in silver, please bring your own 24 or 22 gauge sterling sheet

    You need only your fingers and a single small knitting needle to construct a Freehand Knit chain bracelet in delicate gauge fine (pure) silver wire.

    You will also learn to make sterling silver earrings in two linked chain patterns: Turkish Maille chain and Ribbon chain.  Turkish Maille chain is striking, with a knotted and entwined finished look.  Ribbon chain is a sleek and flexible design. Pre-cut sterling rings are provided, and simple clasps and ear wires to finish the bracelet and earrings are covered, so students leave with jewelry to wear themselves or to grace a lucky gift recipient!

    Because such a short list of simple hand tools is required to make a very diverse selection of patterns, chain making is an ideal, and relatively portable, activity to continue enjoying long beyond the close of the class. Students are encouraged to bring favorite beads to incorporate into their work. No torch work is required for this class.

    This class has prerequisites. Please see details.

    Do you want to cast outside of class? 

    Come be a part of Jewelry Studio Casting Club!!

    This is an exciting opportunity to practice casting your own work in precious metals. This is a hands-on experience. You'll have an opportunity to do every step in the casting process yourself. This isn't a class, but more like an open studio for casting. It will require some casting experience (see below) and teamwork. We've started this club to give our community a chance to cast on a regular basis. We plan on growing and evolving to include the casting of 3D printed pieces and mold making. If you're interested in participating, see requirements and specifics below.

    Details:

    • Your payment for the class includes 2 flasks equal to 500 grams of investment.
    • If you choose to cast more than 2 flasks, bring cash to pay for extra investment used.  We have a cost chart posted for easy reference.
    • Bronze or Sterling are the most often cast materials. We will have some metal for sale, but please feel free to bring your own. If you are using scrap, please clean and remove all solder beforehand. (You can cast in gold if you choose )

    PREREQUISITES and Requirements for Casting Club:

    • You need to have taken at least one lost wax centrifugal casting class in the last year where you poured your own metal. (Or have enough experience with lost wax centrifugal casting that you are comfortable casting on your own. If this is the case, shoot us an email so you can get approved.)
    • To participate you must be 18 years or older (special circumstances must be cleared with the Jewelry Studio beforehand)

    What To Expect:

    Session 1, we will be investing, so come with your pieces sprued, weighed (don't forget to record your wax weight & bring it) and attached to the sprue base, so we can jump right in.  Don’t plan on there being time to sprue your work during this time.  If you have any concerns or would like some advice on spruing, come to open studio on Monday or Friday.  We have set aside a locker where you can leave your sprued flask if you so choose. During investing, we’ll have time to make some last minute adjustments and weigh our metals.  When everyone's done investing we’ll clean up and figure out the pouring order for the next morning.  You're welcome to stay to help load the kiln for its’ overnight burn. 

    Session 2, come with appropriate casting wear (& hair up).  After a review of the days plan we will get everything ready for the pour.  Teams of 2 people will take turns casting until we finish. When all of the flasks are poured everyone can help clean up and show off their work!!


    • Please wear closed-toed shoes and long pants to the casting day. Non-flammable natural fiber is best. Please bring something to tie back loose hair and don’t wear loose draping clothing.  
    • We have dust masks, safety glasses and gloves that you can use, but feel free to bring your own.

    During this fast-paced, hands-on class you will learn about how to brand yourself, your jewelry and your business, writing a press releases, press kits, participating in craft and trade shows along with pre-show and post-show smartness (whether it is a wholesale or to the ultimate customer), networking, approaching a gallery, writing an artist statement and collection description, collecting words and creating a marketing plan for your specific needs and goals. You will be able to take all this information and plug it into an effective media and marketing campaign.

    So many jewelers call themselves designers, without so much as giving a second thought to what exactly is a designer? And what exactly does a designer do? The concept of what is good design and what is bad design is very subjective, but in this fast paced, highly interactive, fun and creative class you are going to learn first-hand some answers to these questions.

    You will learn the basics of designing or expanding your own cohesive collection with some fun hands-on interactive exercises. Also you will look at your jewelry with new eyes and see how you can improve and strengthen your own individual “designs” and become a more successful and thoughtful “designer.”


    Marlene Richey

And Marlene majored in art and metalsmithing in college and did post-graduate work on Russian icons. Marlene grew up in an environment where at the dinner table “less is more,” Scandinavian design, Alvar Aalto and the post-modern movement were common topics. Marlene knows design.
