      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 she executes using various fabrication techniques, including chasing and repoussé.

      Hammond exhibits locally and nationally, and her work has been published in Metalsmith magazine’s Exhibition in Print. She is a member of the Seattle Metals Guild; has served on the Board of Northwest Designer craftsmen; and co-chaired a national conference for the Society of North American Goldsmiths. She is currently the Lead for the Jewelry and Fine Metals Studio at BARN.

      Nothing is as important to a professional artist's or designer's career as a carefully created portfolio. Yet very few people have one that they're proud to show. Something always seems to get in the way of sitting down and figuring out just how you want to define your work, what you want to focus on, and whom you want to attract with a curated group of pieces you've made. Whether you're blowing the dust off your old portfolio, or creating a new one from scratch, this class takes you through the process of creating a strong portfolio step-by-step, identifying concrete objectives, finding holes that need to be filled, and providing encouragement and review along the way.

      High schoolers applying to college, people applying to grad school, recent grads about to start the job search, people applying for a job in a design field or in academia, or artists who want to get their work into viewable order either physically or online--all need up-to-date portfolios-- and all are welcome.

      Nothing is as important to a professional artist's or designer's career as a carefully created portfolio. Yet very few people have one that they're proud to show. Something always seems to get in the way of sitting down and figuring out just how you want to define your work, what you want to focus on, and whom you want to attract with a curated group of pieces you've made. Whether you're blowing the dust off your old portfolio, or creating a new one from scratch, this class takes you through the process of creating a strong portfolio step-by-step, identifying concrete objectives, finding holes that need to be filled, and providing encouragement and review along the way.

      High schoolers applying to college, people applying to grad school, recent grads about to start the job search, people applying for a job in a design field or in academia, or artists who want to get their work into viewable order either physically or online--all need up-to-date portfolios-- and all are welcome.

      PMC RingsPrecious Metal Clay is a clay-like material made up of fine metal particles, an organic binder and water. Working with PMC is similar to playing with PlayDoh as it can be rolled, shaped, textured, molded, and carved to your imagination's delight. Pieces are fired in a kiln which burns off the binder and melts the particles together into a solid metal finished work of art

      This class will review the basics of working with metal clay and will be comfortable for both beginners and intermediate PMC enthusiasts. On day one, a variety of ring styles will be discussed and design elements explored. Students will learn about clay shrinkage and how to size rings accordingly. Stone setting in PMC will be covered and a variety of crystals will be available to incorporate into pieces All participants will be able to create a number of different rings for over night firing. Day two will allow for discussion of the fired pieces and cover a variety of finishing techniques for them. Students should have time to continue working with their remaining clay and options for additional firing.

      Do you dream of earning money as an artist? Make that dream a reality by learning how to market your artwork to reach a bigger audience! No matter what your medium is, you can use tips and tricks from the marketing trade to make your art shine on a bigger stage. From jewelry-makers to woodworkers, illustrators and digital artists, textile crafters, and mixed media creators, you can sell your craft by getting in front of the right people — with the right price and the right message!

      In this four-session class, you’ll learn:

      • How to create a brand with your own style
      • How to price and position your art for the right audience
      • How to photograph and/or present your art so that it sells
      • How to create an Etsy page
      • How to get people to see your Etsy page
      • How to switch things up if your art is not selling
      • How to officially start a business (and pay taxes) if you start making serious money
      • To get you up and running in just four days, there will be some fun homework with this class.

      Note: This class is tailored to students 12-18 who have an established art or craft they feel confident about. Participants should bring their own tablet or smartphone and will be required to download a subscription-based design software called Canva (which has a limited free version available). Participants will also be asked to use existing social media and email accounts to promote their materials, though this is optional if they don’t have them or don’t want to use them for promotional purposes. Finally, they will also be creating an Etsy account, which will require a credit card in order to go live (this is part of their class homework).
