Instructor: Rafael Bautista
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. Students need to be comfortable with a moderate level of physical activity, including standing for periods of time and walking over uneven surfaces.
