Metal morphosis Retreat

Additional Information

 Imagine spending a week in a quaint picturesque town in the  French countryside! Your adventure begins in Durfort France, home of La  Cascade, a beautifully restored village house and art retreat on a  riverbank. Each day includes waking to the relaxing sounds of a  waterfall, fresh and organic meals lovingly prepared by resident chef  Nese, and field trips to local tourist attractions such as the Saturday  market, which has been named one of the 100 most beautiful in France.  Additional info about La Cascade available HERE:

We will also spend time in the studio each day with classes directed  by metal smith Eva Sherman. Students will fuse sterling silver sheet and  wire to a sterling silver base plate to create a richly textured sheet.  We will then use the textured sheet as a basic building module with  which to create several unique pieces of jewelry. Since textured metal  is such a foundational design element, students will have the  opportunity for unlimited exploration while refining metal smithing  skills. 

Please note: You must be able to navigate stairs as all bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and studio is on the 3rd floor.
