Monday - Friday, April 15th - 19th, 9-5pm
This week long workshop will focus on the design and fabrication of a hollow form bracelet incorporating bracelet hinges and a clasp mechanism. Explore a number of bracelet techniques including including anticlastic and synclastic raising, decking, fabrication, and fold forming to create the bracelet form.
Intimidated by the mechanisms? There’s ample time to explore several bangle fabrication techniques without the hinges and clasps.
Working with students from initial concept to finished piece, master silversmith Kevin O'Dwyer will combine skill and technique based demonstrations with one-to-one tutoring and problem solving throughout the workshop.
We are so excited to have Kevin O'Dwyer back to Minnesota and in the studio for 2 great workshops: his 2 day ring fabrication workshop and his 5 day bracelet fabrication workshop. Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to learn from a highly skilled, master silversmith! A list of suggested materials will be sent out a month prior to the workshop.
