Workshops include:

Wearable Art; Object + Body, Drawing the Fashion Figure and Jewellery Making

 

I taught jewelly making and wearable art design at Alberta College of Art + Design for over 25 years. My insight and communication style has empowered and supported developing artists for generations. I beleive in the handmade, teaching craftmanship, design and concept.

Wearable Art; Object + Body

 

As an art form, the wearable extends across many disciplines. Workshop participates will be re-cycling and up-cycling using alternative and found materials. Students will turn the ordinary into the extraordinary creating unconventional body adornment. This unique fashion design explores and promote personal expression.

Drawing the Fashion Figure
The fashion figure is 9 heads tall, maybe more. The student in this workshop will learn the formula of the stylized figure while exploring an expressive and execrated line.   
An Ancient Technique a Modern Journey

 

There is a magic and a power in controlling fire.  I have been named the "Queen of Soldering". My students learn how to fabricate and hand-craft unquie jewellery pieces.
