We're holding our last class meetings of the winter semester online instead of at the Lab. We've got some cool ideas to make it all seem less dreary and depressing so we hope you'll join us! Just go to our home page at your regular class time and you'll find a link to join in. Our last class each session is usually a party, so make yourself something yummy and fire up your computer, laptop, phone...whatevs. And if you're not a student of that class, join us online anyways! We're even going to hold our traditional, last class drawing for any of the students who tune in.
Due to the recently announced travel restrictions, we are sad to announce the cancellation of our class with Daniela Malev. At this time we can't know if flights will be available again in time for her trip so we're erring on the side of less stress for Daniela and all of you, our students. As with Albion, we're happily looking forward to rescheduling Daniela's class once things have calmed down and we'll announce the new dates in upcoming newsletters. In the meantime we'll be refunding all tuition payments today. #KeepCalmAndCarryOn #FlattenTheCurve
Based on the recent news and guidelines, we've decided to do our part to #FlattenTheCurve by cancelling both of our upcoming classes with Albion Smith. We all agreed that having him travel to San Diego from Santa Cruz right now was not a good idea. We're happily looking forward to rescheduling those classes once things have calmed down and we'll announce the new dates in upcoming newsletters. Keep calm and carry on.
Friday, March 6, 5-9pm 2020
Stop by on Friday to watch a master metalsmith at work performing hollow forming and anticlastic hammering in the style of master metalsmiths Georg Jensen and Hekki Seppa. In this exciting night of demos you can see how Alexandra controls the movement of the metal using just a few hammers and stakes. Demos at the top of the hour - 6pm, 7pm and 8pm. First Friday is a fun, family-friendly event that happens every month. Come explore the fabulous new Liberty Public Market, stroll through shops and visit working artist studios to see what's new - all for FREE. Anneville is just one of over 80 artist studios, galleries, museums and other art destinations open for this monthly event. With a dozen fabulous restaurants within walking distance, it makes a great evening out. And, we've got free parking! Get directions.
In honor of the month of love we're running a sale on all of the jewelry in our gallery case. Anne pretty much never does sales, so this is a great opportunity to pick up some beautiful work at 20% off including mokume gane earrings, bracelets & pendants all hand-made right here at Liberty Station. Anne's also offering forged sterling silver etched "tree bark" rings and her one-of-a-kind "Sun Blaze" mokume gane pill box (save $76!). In addition to Anne's work we have handmade pieces by silversmith Julie Monroe including her unique water-cast San Diego sea glass pendants (imbued with warm sand, swaying palm trees and ocean breezes), enamel and fume-patina earrings and three spectacular stone-set cuff bracelets. Her "Ruby Dragonfly" bracelet in particular is a great gift and it's $49 off right now. Everything comes with free gift wrapping including a chocolate favor. Sale ends at 6pm on Thursday 2/13/20. Peace, Love and Mokume Gane!
