Electroforming Workshop

This is a 2-Day Workshop!

Saturday, October 6th, 2018 from 10 am to 3 pm (Part 1)  AND

Saturday, October 13th from 10am to 1pm (Part 2)

Electroforming is a process which creates metal objects through electro-deposition onto a model. It is often used to encase organic or other non-metallic materials in a metal coating.

In this 2-day workshop, we will be using electroforming as an alternative method for setting stones. This is an excellent technique to set irregular stones or fragile materials that would be difficult or nearly impossible to set.

Each student will leave the workshop with having constructed a pair of jeweled earrings and a ring through the use of electroforming techniques.

Beginning and advanced jewelry students are welcome.

There will be a 30 minute break for lunch. Bring your own sack lunch or grab lunch in the area.

Fee: $150.00 per student, materials included. You are welcome to bring your own stones.
