5-Day workshop w/ Rachel Reichert 
July 08 – 12, 2019  
All Levels 

Searching for textures, patterns, ornamentation, and shapes, we’ll create jewelry inspired by Atlanta’s historic architecture and rare artifacts. The many hand-built homes and folk objects will provide inspiration for rings, brooches, pendants, and small sculptures. Students will learn basic silver fabrication techniques, including sawing, filing, riveting, soldering, and die forming. From the 150-year-old buildings to the antique flatware and pottery, we’ll let the character of Atlanta, Idaho transform our design process. 

The workshop fee includes workshop, lab fees, and dormitory lodging for six nights. Students will arrive July 07, 8pm. Contact us for other lodging options. Supply list provided upon registration.
