10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Please arrive 10 minutes early. We are making two clasps in two days, it's important to get started right away. Bring your own lunch or walk a few blocks for sandwiches, sushi, salads and coffee. If you are coming in from out of town and need to arrange lodging, contact me, I'm happy to help.
Create clasps that are safe, secure and truly one-of-a-kind. Come up with unique solutions to complete your designs. Learn and make both the key and box clasp. We will discuss customizing terminals and findings to unify your art jewelry and explore a variety of solutions to link your custom-made clasp to the rest of your piece. Students are expected to go with their own design style in order to explore new ideas in finishing their jewelry. Step-by-step handouts are provided for both clasps. Basic fabrication and soldering, required.
