June 30-July 7, 2015
Join Susan Lenart Kazmer and Jen Cushman for an immersion workshop where students will have the opportunity to dig deep into their work by exploring innovative design concepts and honing their metalworking skills. Relics found at Paris flea markets prior to the workshop or treasured objects brought from home will be re-imagined into Talisman pieces of unique jewelry during the week at La Cascade. A full range cold connection and wire working techniques will be taught, as well as color on metal, Resin Alchemy and Susan’s innovative fiber-and-wire connections. We’ll also create a forged wire and resin paper journal so students can capture all the new design ideas and stunning beauty the South of France has to offer. Healthy and delicious meals are prepared fresh each day by French chef Nese Pelt, and dinner is served each evening family style with much joy and laughter.
$3,200 includes double occupancy bedrooms at La Cascade, meals, instruction and a comprehensive kit to build your pieces. Space is limited.
