WCCPL (West City Campus, Point Loma) is a top-notch jewelry/metals lab only about a mile away from Anneville Studio. With a class max of 20 and a large room full of great metals equipment, it is a vibrant and social place to learn. I'll be teaching two classes there this spring. Registration for these classes is through the school, not me! Just follow the links to register.
Jewelry and Metalworking - Advanced
Wednesdays, 10am-2pm, June 29 - August 17
Join us for a summer of rolling mill techniques, forging, and fabricating! We'll start with some rolling mill-assisted forging of square copper rod, making unique twisted and forged bracelets. After that we'll concentrate on rolling mill textures and fabricating small boxes. As always, more advanced students are welcome to pursue their own projects during class time, the only requirement being quiet during the demos. Students new to me are welcome, but you should have basic jewelry/metalworking skills (soldering, sawing, filing, some forming). Register.
Jewelry Fabrication Lab
Wednesdays, 3-5pm, June 29 - August 17
This fabrication lab is designed to give students more time in the studio to work on their current jewelry or metalsmithing projects. No new projects given or scheduled demos, but I'm happy to help with ongoing projects. Students must have taken jewelry classes at West City or with the instructor within the past year. Register.
Jewelry and Metalworking - Beginning to Advanced
Wednesdays, 6-9pm, June 29 - August 17
Learn the basics or expand your skills while creating finished pieces. We'll start with a stamped cuff bracelet, then learn how to use the rolling mill to create intricate and unique textures on copper and brass. Our last project will teach you basic soldering while creating a small ring box with your textured metal. Beginners are welcome - you'll receive lots of how-to handouts and instructions on purchasing a beginner toolkit on the first day of class. Register.
