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 at least one week in advance to ensure there is time to get your tools and supplies.
