Jewelry Artists Retreat 2009

We've unfortunately had 2 last minute cancellations.

So although this is very last minute - if anyone wants to attend - - - -

Date: Oct 11-18

Cost: $250.00

the house is located in northern NC - very close to the VA line - on Lake Gaston

this is a shared living space - the spots are for the shared bedrooms on the lower level.

Everyone gets their own bed - but it may be part of a bunk bed, or a separate single/twin bed.

Part of what we hope to cover -

  • chainmaille
  • resin techniques
  • forging
  • anticlastic forming
  • chasing
  • enamelling
  • soldering
  • wirework
  • stone setting - bezels, tube, flush, tension, and bead setting
  • fold forming
  • patinas (I just received a whole array of agents for patinas to obtain green, blue, red, brown, white on copper....)

We will have multiple flexshafts and torhces, a large kiln, a selection of stakes, rolling mill, and lots of other tools and equipment. We ask that you bring your own handtools - pliers, etc. and your own metals and stones, although we always share and some people bring extra to barter or sell.

If you are interested please let me know ASAP.
