Wood and Resin Jewelry Making

07/20/2024 10:00 AM - 07/21/2024 04:00 PM ET


Instructor Kathy Prisco will be giving a multifaceted class on making jewelry using a variety of techniques. The first day, Kathy will give demonstrations and students have an opportunity to experiment with a scroll saw and lathe, mixing and pouring epoxy resin, and gluing up thin pieces of wood and hand turning wooden rings and bracelets. Students will also learn some rudimentary techniques for assembling jewelery. The object of the class is that students will be exposed to enough processes on day 1 that on day 2, they will be able to design and create a piece of jewelry of their choosing.
