Spring class schedule up at West City - classes start February 3 and 6
WCCPL (West City Campus, Point Loma) is a top-notch jewelry/metals lab only about a mile away from Anneville Studio. With a class maximum of 20 and a large room full of professional equipment, it is a vibrant and social place to learn. Registration for these classes is through the school, not me! Just follow the links to register:
Jewelry and Metalworking - Advanced
Mondays, 9am-1pm, February 6 - May 22
(holidays - Feb 20 and March 27)
cost $412 - that's under $30 for each 4 hour class - best deal in town!
For our first project we will delve into the mysteries of using liver of sulphur patina on silver while creating a pair of earrings and a ring with soldered disc centerpiece. Rather than just black, we'll be using special techniques to get and keep amazing blues, magentas and gold colors.
Next, we'll learn photo-etching and create a layered mullti-color brooch with our etched metal. Lastly, we'll make another ring - but this time with a carved shank and a central stone.
Students new to me are welcome, but you should have basic jewelry/metalworking skills (soldering, sawing, filing, some forming). Register.
Jewelry and Metalworking - Beginning to Advanced
Mondays, 2-5pm, February 6 - May 22
(holidays - Feb 20 and March 27) - cost $314
Learn the basics or expand your skills while creating three projects. We'll start by creating a unique cuff bracelet from copper, move on to make a photo-etched pendant, and finish with a silver ring with stone. 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.
Friday Jewelry Fabrication Lab
Fridays, 9am-1pm, February 3 - May 19 (holidays on Feb 17 and March 31)
This 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 me within the past year. Register.
