TACS to hold jewelry workshopPublished 7:43pm Thursday, October 4, 2012
Tryon Arts and Crafts School will host a Fold Forming and Cold Connections Workshop with Kim St. Jean on Nov. 3 – 4.
St. Jean, an award-winning artist, instructor and author, will teach students some of her favorite fold-forming techniques to create organic, hand-forged, three-dimensional jewelry pieces from metal, and how to make several types of cold connections between metal and other materials. At the end of the workshop, students will walk away with several jewelry pieces that they have designed and created themselves.
St. Jean has been teaching jewelry classes for 13 years. She has been published in numerous magazines and appeared on several beading and craft television programs. She is the author of “Mixed Metal Mania,” a popular how-to book for jewelry artists, and she is currently finishing her second book.
St. Jean was also named one of the top 10 instructors in the country by the editors and readers of “Bead & Button” and “Beadstyle” magazines.
The workshop will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, 9 am – 5pm, and Sunday, Nov. 4, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Students should pack a lunch. All materials and tools will be supplied; additional supplies and tools will be available for purchase during the weekend.
