Are you interested in learning to make jewelry while stuck at home? This class focuses on fundamental jewelry-making skills that are easily adapted for home use. You don’t need a jewelry studio, just a table to work at and a few hand tools.* We’ll focus on a range of approaches to working with wire and sheet metal, the building blocks of jewelry. Each online class session will feature live demonstrations, pre-recorded reference videos and plenty of supervised work time. It is suggested that students continue to work on their projects outside of class, and there will be an opportunity to consult the instructor between sessions. The skills introduced in this class can be safely practiced almost anywhere, and also provide a solid foundation for future in-studio classes.

Prerequisite: none. This class is for beginners.

*Students will pick up a supply kit from Pratt prior to the first class. Students will need to provide their own handtools based on a shopping list provided (this includes common items such as a hammer and pliers; more specialized items include a jeweler’s saw, files, etc.). Students receiving Tuition Assistance may request to borrow a tool kit from Pratt. PLEASE REGISTER BY JULY 31 TO ENSURE THERE WILL BE TIME TO RECEIVE YOUR SUPPLY KIT.

Shortness of breath, viral, racial, political. Suppression of ourselves, of others, and sadly, the sweet fruits of our own creativity. We’ve lost trust in our natural breath, and the breathing world. Really, are we breathing or are we “being breathed”? Opening the breath through art, following its flow with empathy, sorrow, joy, freedom. Art is breathed into being, and it knows where it’s going...follow it!Drawing, painting, mixed media and more, in a relaxed atmosphere where the inner critic, the nemesis of breath, is not invited! Prerequisite: None  This class is an online learning course hosted via Microsoft Teams.

WARNING: This woodworking class is not your typical "come in, follow an instruction sheet, and learn to make something" offering. This class is about using YOUR design ideas, taking creative risks together, and sculpting them into a custom box. No two boxes in the class will be alike, just like no two people are alike. Is the box serious and sophisticated with figured black walnut and brass accents that belong in a library full of leather bound books and smoking jackets, YES. Is the box whimsical with googly eyes and sharp teeth as if it just walked out of a Tim Burton movie, YES. Is the box modern, minimal, clean, and eclectic where the purpose is almost ambiguous when you look at it, YES. Let's put our egos on hold, and imagine something new and wonderful together, and then build it. Design options might include carving, mixed media such as brass or copper, patterns such as plaid or interesting wood colors combinations, drawing via pyrography, using veneer, highly figured woods, etc. Whatever we have the time and skills to accomplish together over the 3 day class is considered in play. We will help guide you through both the design as well as fine-furniture level execution, showing you proper box construction techniques including grain wrapping, tight miter joint glue up, divider systems, lid design, and finishing. Participants must come with some degree of woodworking skills in place, that is experience with basic woodworking machinery (table saw, jointer, planer) and/or hand tools. Participants should supply the wood for the box they have in mind (plus any additional elements they like). The class instructor, Paul Jasper of Copper Pig Woodworking, will also have some brass and copper included in the price of the class. You can choose to buy a sheet of his classic plaid during the class if desired. Class size will max at 6 students + instructor + teacher assistant to keep the group small (max 8 people) due to the highly custom and interactive nature of such a class.
