CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Thursday, October
BRATTLEBORO Borter's Jewelry Studio Workshop - Basic Jewelry Design : Bob Borter will co-teach with fellow silversmiths Susanna Haas and Chris Lann. We'll explore the process of designing a small body of original work. Students will experiment with various methods of design, including sketching and model making, to generate a thorough plan of construction and develop a solid practice of critical thinking with consideration of materials, tools, technique, and basic metalsmithing principles. Unlike other classes, the object will not be to complete a piece of jewelry designed by the instructors. Instead, you will leave with a step-by-step plan to execute your jewelry design in your own time. We offer advice for equipping your first jeweler’s bench and sourcing tools and materials, or rent bench time here. 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. (10/18, 10/19, 10/25, 10/26). Through Friday, October 26. $400 (materials included). Borters Jewelry Studio, 22 High St., #202. Information: 802-254-3452, email@example.com, bortersjewelry.com/classes.
