This class is a look into the world of working with cane. We will cover the very basics of pulling cane, starting with filligranna (straight cane), clear or color core and clear core with color on the outside, as well as a myriad of other possibilities. As the foundations of gathering, marvering, and transferring to a post are established we will delve into the beginnings of patterned cane such as zanfirico, ballotini, and a few others. In addition to pulling the cane the process of picking up the cane to make small vessels, tumblers, and ornaments will be covered. Successful cane pulling happens by repetition to sharpen your eyes and hands for managing the heat correctly. Look forward to a fun class. For me, pulling cane is one of the coolest things in glass, right up there with Prince Rupert's drops. Prerequisite: At least one session of Beginning glass blowing or equivalent.

Pate de Verre is a French term meaning 'paste of glass,' referring to a process in which a paste of glass is made from fine particles of glass and mixed with a binding agent. The mixture is placed into the interior of a plaster mold to create either a thin, thick, solid, or hollow glass form. Learn the basic fundamentals to create pieces starting from the creation of the clay positive to making a mold, and from packing and kiln-firing the glass to cold working and finishing touches. In this 6 week Pate de Verre class you will learn how to create and use custom color to provide limitless possibilities for your creative work. The class will cover three projects and two distinct looks so you can mix and match to provide multiple opportunities to work in this unique medium. The bas-relief and sintered vessel will be appropriate to the size and time frame to complete within 3 weeks. At the first session please bring a sample of your art images on a jump drive so we can share artwork. Prerequisite: None.

Veterans Glassblowing Day was initially inspired by President Obama's plea for citizens to help our veterans find work after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Following President Obama's passing of the Veterans Skills to Jobs Act in July 2012, longtime glassblower Lisa Aronzon was inspired by this call to action and invited the glassblowing community to come together in support of our veterans. As our nation faces financial uncertainty, social revolution, acts of violence, and military conflicts, Veterans Glassblowing Day offers a terrific opportunity for Americans to pay it forward to our troops.

Curious about computer-aided design and three-dimensional printing? Consider this two-part workshop as your hands-on introduction to new frontiers! During the first class you will get familiar with a digital workspace, use pre-programmed ring generators to create and personalize virtual designs for two styles of ring: a signet and an openwork band. Send your favorite off to digital printing bureau Shapeways, our partner for this workshop, and receive your metal ring by mail. During the second class, you'll explore post-production techniques for customizing digitally manufactured products, and learn more about the next level of programming options. You are encouraged to bring a laptop (specifications provided) but it is not required; if you can't bring a computer we'll give you information on where to use one and instructions for working on your own. Prerequisite: none. 

There is no supply fee but students will pay for printing their own rings (approximately $30 for brass or $60 for sterling). Shapeways will provide a one-time 15% discount for students in this class.

Learn to fabricate with mild steel in this workshop designed to acquaint you with an affordable alternative to precious metals. You will learn to manipulate and solder steel, inlay solder into steel, and finish steel for wearability. Being both strong and easily available, steel allows you to experiment without fear of expense or size. We will be utilizing the manufacturing process of water jet cutting, which will allow you to design and create multiples in order for you to quickly experiment and alter a basic design. This process can be a helpful foray into creating a uniform production line. In order to have all water jet cuttings available on the first day of class, you will need to sign up at least TWO WEEKS in advance, and prepare for a design consultation via phone with Sarah before the class begins. Expect to complete a small collection of your own designs.

Prerequistie: Beginning Jewelry/Metals or equivalent.

Instructor: Jesse Bert

Founded in 1542 in an area rich in silver and gems, the town of San Miguel de Allende (originally named Izcuinapan by the indigenous peoples) is filled with buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, which have earned it UNESCO's recognition as a World Heritage Site. A favorite with history buffs due to its importance in the Mexican War of Independence, San Miguel's surroundings have also attracted artists from around the world.
 
This course celebrates San Miguel's natural resources, cultural riches, and historic significance. We'll begin the week with a trunk show of stunning regional gemstones, from which students will select and purchase their favorite(s) to serve as the basis for their class project. In-studio instruction will focus on creative stonesetting and complementary techniques for adding texture and detail. We will further develop our jewelry designs outside of the studio through guided observation exercises and cultural tours.
 
Our instructor Jesse Bert earned an MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from East Carolina University, and regularly exhibits his work in Mexico, the United States, and across Europe. He has made Mexico his home since 2006. A cactus collector and hiker, Jesse is energized by his surroundings:
 
 "My work is informed and inspired by the land in which I live, history and architecture...Nature is another essential element in my life. The pattern, repetition, and consistency show through in the items that leave my bench, carrying with them great detail and an acute intricacy like so many of the wonderful plants found on my daily walks." 
 
Our hotel for the week is a centrally-located former monastery with a pool and gardens. From there, we'll make the short walk to Jesse Bert's studio each morning for class from 9am to 1pm. After breaking for lunch, the group will spend most afternoons and some evenings exploring San Miguel and the surrounding area. We will see museum collections, shop for supplies and souvenirs, and visit both traditional and cutting-edge craftspeople. 
 
Head home with new jewelry skills, a ring or pendant featuring your chosen stone, and designs inspired by San Miguel's history, culture, and environment!

If last year's Oaxaca trip left you hungry for more, please consider joining 2018's alumni-only intermediate filigree workshop! Many favorite parts of the trip will remain unchanged: we'll stay in Las Golondrinas and hold classes around the corner at El Oro de Monte Alban with the one-and-only Maestro Rafael Bautista. We'll enjoy a blend of self-directed free time and organized group activities like delicious dinners and eye-opening tours. We'll escape Seattle's grey season for Oaxaca's light, warmth, and color!
 
So what's new?

-Your class will meet in the afternoons (2-6pm), giving you the opportunity to explore the city during the cooler morning hours.
 
-You'll still participate in organized tours and activities outside of class--but I have a couple of new things up my sleeve that are just for the intermediate students.

-A smaller class size (maximum 4) will ensure even more one-on-one attention, and most of your work will be done in silver (provided).

-Most importantly, Maestro Bautista will challenge you with an exciting new project! You will focus on the central element in one of traditional Oaxacan filigree's most iconic earring designs, known as "El Jardín." Shaped like a three-dimensional ribbon bow, this form will introduce new techniques including bending filigree into complex shapes and embellishing your filigree forms with beading and "diamond cut" engraving. Depending on your skill, you may complete a pendant or a pair of earrings.
 
Prerequisite: Students must have attended the 2017 "Silver Filigree in Oaxaca" course.

Instructor: Rafael Bautista

The region now known has Oaxaca has a rich tradition of metal arts going back some 2500 years to the establishment of Monte Alban, one of Mesoamerica's first cities. The production of lace-like metal filigree has flourished since colonial times, captivating viewers with its combination of fragility and strength: For openwork filigree, jewelers require a minimum of metal: delicately twisted wires may make up less than half the surface; the rest is air.
  
Study abroad students will receive instruction on the traditional methods of Oaxacan-style filigree in the workshops of El Oro de Monte Alban, the city's most prominent jewelry company. Our instructor Rafael Bautista has been creating filigree since the age of eighteen. In 2013, El Oro de Monte Alban invited Maestro Bautista to develop a basic filigree course in an effort to promote and maintain jewelry manufacturing as a sustainable activity among locals. He has since taught students from all over Mexico, as well as England, Japan and the United States.
 
Our home base for the week is a charming courtyard hotel in the historic colonial district. From there it's an easy walk to El Oro de Monte Alban for class each morning. After breaking for lunch, the group will spend the afternoons and some evenings exploring other aspects of Oaxaca's metal arts scene. We will tour inspiring museum collections, shop for supplies and souvenirs, and visit both traditional and cutting-edge craftspeople--including women participating in a microfinance program.
 
Prerequisite: None. This workshop is open to students of all levels.

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint from the figure without having to draw like Leonardo? Then this rigorous, but fun class is for you. Learn how to follow shapes, create space, and most of all compose your page, without painstaking proportions and measurements. We will use the model to look hard, but we won't be working towards 19th century realism. You will be composing and deconstructing on the fly, at a fast pace, alternating with very slow and deliberate observation. You can't be attached to the outcome, or even have any idea of what your work will look like when it is done. In fact your work will be ?undone? if it gets predictable. This will be action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

In this class, you will learn the basics of moku-hanga, Japanese woodblock, and explore other variations within the medium. Moku-hanga differs from many techniques for its use of water based ink- and for being printed by hand, without a press. In this class you will start by using water based ink, but also explore the possibilities of printing by hand in the traditional style while using western oil-based inks instead. By the end of this workshop you will be able to take this technique and print at home, in an unventilated space and without a press! Supply fee $20 Prerequisite: None

This class designed for beginners to advanced students in the fundamentals of the Classical Realist technique. This foundation is appropriate for any artist and is designed to give students the knowledge and confidence to become comfortable in using the magnificent medium of oil paint with methods and materials used by the classical masters. We will explore the oil painting techniques and style of realist painting used by artists such as Velasquez and Caravaggio to Bouguereau and Sargent. Develop confidence in using tools and materials, paint mixing and color theory that take the student from the initial sketch through each type of paint layering to the final highlights. Demonstrations in each class help the student gain new insights into using the basic primary color palette, subject development, underpainting and overpainting, thin wash to thick impasto, mixing colors in the correct value and tone as well as how and when to use paint mediums and the fine art of glazing.

Many people think that if they can?t draw in proportion they are ?not talented? and have no business doing art. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are not suited to careful measuring and painstaking draftsmanship you are not alone. This has nothing to do with whether or not you are ?talented? or whether or not you should try making art. This workshop will teach even the most drafting averse person how to get proportion without sacrificing the real value of the artwork, which is to learn to be comfortable with your own set of 'talents'. Some people never can make precise measurements but they can still draw in proportion through an intuitive quick approach.

You may think doing your painting with the help of a projection is 'cheating'. But did you know there is evidence that even the masters of the Renaissance used projections to start their paintings? Optics revolutionized how we see the world and painting emulated its 'realism' for centuries. Projection can save you hundreds of frustrating hours laying out the groundwork for you painting and it has never been easier or as effective with today's technology. The first half of the class will be showing you how to choose and prepare your digital image. The second half will be how set up your projection and lay it on the canvas. If you would like to follow along with your own laptop and/or digital projector feel free to bring it. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown . ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Mediums are what we add to oil paint to make it come alive with unique character all its own. The masters carefully guarded their own formulations of oil mediums because they knew how important they were to the very essence of the painting. Now making your own oil medium or even understanding how to use the readymade mediums in the store is becoming a lost art. Historically the alchemy of paint occupied many artists all of their lives. Find out what you may have been missing in your painting and straighten out the confusion array of mediums to make your art come alive! All materials provided and you get to take home a selection of mediums to try at home. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown . ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Many people would love to paint in oil at home but are concerned with the fumes. Some try water based oils but find them less than satisfying. But there is a way to use oil paint without using any solvents. It is identical to the range and feel of traditional oil paints with just a few changes in procedure. Find out how to put together your own set of non-toxic paints and how to use them in one lesson. You don?t even need to buy materials in advance, just come and see if it they will work for you first. I will also let you in on the ways to avoid the art store and get some of your materials for much less. This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in Georgetown.

Usually color is taught as ?Color Theory? which involves tediously painting in hundreds of little squares or placing pre-colored papers next to each other. After doing these exercises you still don?t know what to do in your real life painting. This workshop is focused on actually using color on your painting and understanding how it works in a way you can use right away. First we will understand how to create and see color using a limited pallette which will teach you how to mix and see subtle color much more effectively. Then, studying particular masters, we will unlock the color harmony in their work so that you can reproduce it in a work of your own. In the end you will have at least two paintings to take home that you can use to find your own individual palette. We will be using oil paint and canvas which is provided for you, please bring your own brushes and palette knives if you have them. This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. Prerequisite: none

A blacksmith inherently distorts metal, it is the nature of the craft. In this class we will focus on stretching bending and persuading steel on its most difficult planes to look elegant, easy and unforced, despite the process. We will develop complex shapes and, looking at them as elements of sculpture, we will calculate material needs and the tool making to accomplish the forms cleanly and precisely. Students will leave with a better sense for how to visualize the movement qualities of hot steel and make tooling to accomplish their visions.

Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques. All materials except the cost of bronze are included in supply fee. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $115
