Do you want to help us make our designs in sterling silver?

Hello,We are jewelry designers with the desire to re create our existing designs in sterling silver. We have exclusive copyrights of our designs and we need to commission mold, casting, finishing and also developing the new collections. It does not have to be done all in one place and we are open to work with studios outside of Calgary. Please let me know if we could help each other :DThank you so muchLorenaSee More

This process dates back thousands of years. (approx. 30,000)
Start creating your own glass beads, and sculptures that will last centuries!
6 week course, starting Wednesday evenings April 20th
6:30-9:30pm, 4 student max.
$300pp, depost of $100 required to hold space.

The fluidity, depth, and optical qualities of glass, along with its ability to transmit light make it an incredible medium for artists and crafts people.

Evening 1:
Focus on beginning mandrel wound glass beads. Working with beautfiul Italian, Chinese and German handpulled glass students create beads, and rings. History is discussed, glass formulas, annealing cycles, glass suppliers/makers, and more! Create your own glass beads.
Glass is included this 1st evening. Glass kits may be ordered on this first evening- kits include one labelled rod of each colour from Effetre glass (80 rods, $45) or CiM glass (82 rods, $60). Students may also purchase individual rods sold at the studio, .67¢ to $4.00pr depending on colour. Silver foil, sheet & mesh is available at the studio $1.50-$2per sheet.
Over the next 5 weeks,
Continuing where you left off the 1st evening, learn how to shape different forms, rake, encase, make 'twisties', simple murini, mix your own colours! Make hollow, florals, zebra & tiger striped beads, sculpt!
-Work with metal -in- glass! Using siver foil/leaf in your beads. Work with ivory glass, silver and clear, pull silvered ivory stringer. Add silver foil to other colours and see what happens! Start working 'off-mandrel.-Small scale glass blowing -Marbles, & More! Warning: Off-Mandrel flameworking is addictive. :)

-Work Large! Create beautiful focal pieces, intergalactic marbles, and pendants.
Demos include: Small vessels, working with metal mesh, and more

Absolutely NO experience is necessary! Each student receives 6hrs of FREE Open Studio time to practice their new skills!
