Cloisonné left the grandma zone a long ago--ancient techniques have gone contemporary!  Using flat fine silver or copper wire to create design elements takes basic enameling techniques to a new level.  You will learn how to form, apply, and finish cloisonné designs in your kiln-fired enamel pieces and how best to use colored enamels in the cells they form. This technique also lends itself to beautiful shading of colors with transparent enamels, and this process will be covered in detail during class.  You will use silver and copper cloisonné wire and have plenty of time to work on multiple pieces during this workshop. Pratt’s extensive inventory of opaque and transparent enamels are all available to you during class! Previous enameling experience is very helpful but not required.

At its most basic, a setting is a tiny feat of engineering that renders a gem wearable--as in a gemstone ring or pendant. But settings aren?t just for showing off stones! They can be used to protect and attach a wide variety of items, from found objects to paper ephemera. Starting from the fundamentals of bezel setting, this class will also cover approaches such as square bezels, undulating bezels, hybrid prong settings, and setting with rivets, cages, and frames. With these skills, you?ll be able to turn almost anything into a gem. You?ll also be able to scale your settings up for use in sculptures or even installation art. You?ll complete several samples or jewelry items and have time to undertake more experimental individual projects with your instructor?s support. Prerequisite: JM1 or the ability to solder independently.

Done correctly, this finish is remarkably stable, and this workshop will set you up for success from the start. You'll learn to properly clean and prepare metal for thermoset powder application and how to apply the powder itself; you'll heat cure your pieces and see finished results on the same day. You may bring metal items (brackets, found objects, small costume jewelry components, keys, blanks, etc.) or fabricate items to powder coat from copper and brass sheet and wire provided in class. You'll leave class with the skills and knowledge to continue powder coating in your own studio. Prerequisite: Beginning Jewelry/Metals or equivalent construction and soldering skills.

With its warm tone and affordable price tag, bronze jewelry has a long history and a lot of potential! This alloy of copper and tin is related to brass but has somewhat different working properties. In this quick introduction, you?ll take inspiration from historic examples of bronze jewelry and learn basic approaches to working with bronze, including: manipulating bronze sheet and wire, soldering with bronze solder, quick casting techniques, and finishing for different effects. The emphasis will be on understanding the material and creating samples rather than on finished work. Prerequisite: Beginning Jewelry/Metals or the ability to solder.
