Galvanic Etching on Silver and Copper Workshop
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 from 10am to 6pm
A plain piece of jewelry can easily transform into a much more elaborate piece by simply etching some surface ornamentation.
Instructor: Tara Magboo
Ms. Magboo has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she discovered her love of jewelry fabrication. She continued to pursue higher education at San Diego State University for a Master of Fine Arts degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. The interdisciplinary approach of her formal education broadened her technical abilities in a variety of materials beyond metal, such as acrylic plastic, wood, resin, and alabaster. In addition, her practical experience working in the fashion jewelry industry, as well as exhibiting her own work professionally, has brought her abilities full-circle, enabling her to become a more well-rounded instructor. Tara taught beginning through advanced jewelry making courses at the UCSD Crafts Center for almost five years and continues to teach here at Whaley Studios. She is also the sole proprietor of her own jewelry business “Magboo Jewelry Company” and sells her work at various retail shows such as Comic-Con International.
