Links with the curriculum

Having the chance to make a unique jewel, be it a necklace, a pendant or a bracelet, from a huge selection of stones and various materials is a highly creative activity. It also requires a certain amount of coordination, visualization, and imagination.

The students come out of my workshops very proud of them within hand a small masterpiece that will last all their lives or that can also be offered as a gift. My role as an artist is to assist them from the beginning to the end. ALL materials are provided: tray where to deposit his pieces, thread, chains, locking, stones and pearls, pliers, explanatory booklets with examples, etc. It's 3D art. This workshop is directly related to the Beaux Arts courses by offering a different option / activity, hardly available in the traditional courses of the school system.

Requirements

Students do not need any prior knowledge of jewelry making. I explain to them at the beginning of the workshop. I bring ALL material necessary but we need several tables and chairs and good light. To allow for better results and a relational quality, the recommended number of participants per session is 15. In order to make a piece of jewelry in a pleasant way, without too much stress, it takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. I need an hour to install the class and an hour to put everything back in place.

Availability

I am usually available. Please contact me for more details on this subject.

Number of participants

Min: 30 per day (2 sessions- 15 students)

Duration

One session per group lasts between 1.5 and 2 hours. I can do two sessions in the morning and two in the afternoon.

Cost

$25 dollars per big piece (necklace, pendant or bracelet)

Description

Give your students the chance to create a beautiful jewel whether it's a necklace, a pendant, a bracelet or a pair of earrings. I offer a huge selection of glass pearls, terra-cotta, fused glass, and also semi-precious stones and metallic materials (lead and nickel free). Participants are spoiled for choice. Explanatory booklets are provided as well as cabarets to gather their equipment, tongs to manipulate certain pieces of metal and also a selection of jewelry already made to inspire them. I start the workshop by explaining the attributes of the materials available to them everything is done naturally. As the artist, I'm available to answer their questions and to help them at every stage of the realization of their work. Some are very fast, others take longer, hesitating between one idea and another. Students need imagination, visualization, and coordination. It's an art class but in 3D and you can wear it for the rest of your life!
