JEWELRY

CUTTLEFISHBONE CASTING INTENSIVE (J-1)
Mary Rogers; All Levels
Monday, 6:30 – 9:30 PM
August 4, 11, 25 (3 evenings)
$155 + $35 lab fee

This is an introduction to the process of cuttlefish bone casting, a method of gravity casting. Cuttlefish bone is an organic material that is soft enough to carve a negative mold. Once the mold is cut and both sides are marked for alignment, a sprue channel is cut into the material and molten sterling is poured into the negative area. The texture of the soft bone surface is very organic. Once the casting is complete it can be cut, filed, and soldered to create a distinctive piece of jewelry. This class requires some basic jewelry skills such as sawing, filing and basic torch skills. Students will be casting in sterling silver and will need 2-3 ounces of sterling scrap or sterling casting grain. Sterling scrap will be available for purchase from the instructor in ½ ounce packets. Please note: For safety reasons while casting all students must wear leather shoes or tennis shoes, no sandals or flip flops!

Students of all levels will explore new ideas in mixed media painting, incorporating acrylic painting and collage techniques, as well as considering the use of unconventional surfaces. We will explore layering experimental mediums, photo transfers, and collage in depth, striving for results that go beyond the obvious, and hope to leave people wondering how a painting was created. Each painter is encouraged to find his or her unique direction working abstractly and to develop a concept they feel strongly about. Everyone will benefit from the sharing of ideas and constructive criticism.
