With Metal Smith
Sept. 19-26, 2019
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: http://www.la-cascade.info/index.php/home.html
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.
