November 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm EST - 3:00 pm EST

Cdn $40.00 +Kit fee: $15, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: As featured in the Summer 2019 issue of Belle Amoire Jewelery, Anne Marie Desaulniers will take you on an exploratory journey: learning how to use this versatile new medium, while reviewing many of the experimental options available, to take your art/jewellery to the next level. Its fun, addictive, and like candy, one piece will never be enough! I will take you through the mixing, pouring, colouring, inclusion, and curing stages to help you get a better understanding of how to use this product in your work. Suitable bezels, molds, forms, wire, metalwork, and types of inclusions, will also be discussed.

Skill level: All levels

Prerequisite: N/A

Technique: An overview of some of the possibilities available for working with this medium.

Bring to class: Enthusiasm, a smile, and a sense of humour. A container of Artist’s Concrete, bezels, plus any special items or inclusions, that students would like to include in their pieces. Something to carry your treasures home in the day of the class. Bezels and some inclusions, will be available for purchase at BeadFX.

Of special note: the class patterns and instructions from our classes are for your personal use only. Please respect the intellectual property of our artists/instructors by not sharing, selling, or teaching the patterns you receive from the classes you take.
