Electroforming Workshop

This is a 3-Night Workshop!

Students need to attend all 3 nights of the workshop.

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 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 pendant through the use of electroforming techniques.

Beginning and advanced jewelry students are welcome.

Bring your own snack of you wish.

Fee: $225.00 per student, materials included. You are welcome to bring your own stones.
