What you'll learn in this jewelry class:

This program is taking place remotely. If you have signed up, you will receive an email with details of how to access the program. If we are able to offer an in-person version of this class in the coming months, we will contact you and make both options available to you.

We are witnessing history unfolding in front of our eyes and we are each finding ways to participate in the efforts to live in a more just world.

Beyond protest, donating and speaking up, how does our creative effort resonate? How can jewelry expression contribute in this movement?

Join the class as we:

  1. highlight jewelers, starting in the 1960's through today, that used jewelry as a means to raise awareness and contribute monetarily
  2. research and develop your own expression of contribution today
  3. resourcefully use materials and techniques to execute your idea

Suggested materials are for prototyping:

  • assorted wire
  • poured concrete or clay
  • paper

Ultimately we can make a prototype/mock up that would eventually be rendered in metal
