JF4413 Nov 8 & 9, 2014 (10:00am-4:30 pm) Saturday/Sunday (Metals Studio)

The history of chain making goes back to the beginning of adornment. Many countries/cultures have a version of ‘chain’ that accompanied their adornment heritage. Since the onset of the machine age, chain making has slipped aside as an art form. There are many chains established historically that are not difficult to make and are fun to learn. In this workshop you will be introduced to SIX CHAINS by demonstration and hands on. Students will construct a basic chain that will then go on to become an orbit chain, classic loop in loop, Egyptian links, Byzantine and woven chain (Viking knit). All vary in approach and style and will offer a nice variety to suit different pendants as well as develop skill. Handmade chains, for your one of a kind or small production pieces, will add a detail not accomplished by most purchased machine made chains. Each student will be encourage to make samplings of the chains introduced to develop muscle memory for future production and will be encouraged toward design thinking of their own. A metals foundation is required for this class. .
