Event Details


Description:

Taken some classes in jewelry-making and ready to start out on your own projects, but still uncomfortable working by yourself? Want an expert's opinion to help when you reach a project snag? Directed Open Studios on Wednesday nights is what you seek! Each week, students will work on projects of their own choice with instructor Sage Kochavi to answer questions, demonstrate techniques, and assist with tools. With personalized attention, students will be guided into problem solving, tackling more complex design, soldering solutions and introduction to different tooling.     You will gain great confidence to work independently and become at home in the Asylum's recently upgraded jewelry classroom.

Class Goals:

Students learn metalsmithing through independent projects with the help of expert guidance, and gain enough further knowledge of the tools around them in order to be confident working independently in the Artisan's Asylum jewelry studio.

Prerequisites:

Jewelry I at Artisan's Asylum or proof of basic skills by appointment with the instructor. Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials Provided:

A lab fee of $20 for consumables will be collected at the first class. Students will have the option to purchase additional materials from the instructor and instructed in how to purchase metal and tools independently.

What to Bring:

$20 lab fee for consummables, ongoing projects or project ideas, metal. Students may contact instructor before class session begins for instructions on how to purchase silver if their project requires it.

Instructor Biography:

Sage Kochavi has been making jewelry since the mid-90's and has taught metalsmithing in the Boston area for 8 years. She especially enjoys helping beginning jewelry students discover the pleasure of working with metal. After years working full time as a jeweler, selling her designs in shops across the country, and in multiple other capacities in the field, she primarily makes interactive sculpture. She still thinks nothing compares to the satisfaction of a well-executed solder joint.
