During this 1-week intensive jewellery “boot camp”, students will learn about resin casting, mold-making, inlay techniques and beyond, as they relate to contemporary jewellery. Plastics bring long wearing ‘pops’ of color to your jewellery. Instructor Rebecca Hannon has researched innovative uses of plastics in tandem with traditional goldsmithing techniques for the past 15 years. Skills acquired during this fast paced week include silicon mold making, resin coloring and casting, micro-mosaics and rhinestone inlay, plexi-glass forming and cold connections to tie it all together. Come learn about the myriad possibilities of plastic and go home with a finished piece. All levels welcome.
