5-Day Intensive on January 2-6, 2016

[UPDATE: By popular demand, in addition to the intensive described below, I have added another intensive on March 11-15, 2016. You can sign up for the March intensive directly on my Online Store.]

Since my January intensive is full, I have scheduled another one for January 2-6. This 5-day intensive takes place at my studio in Berkeley, California. In this workshop no commercial or pre-made textures and forms will be used; you will be making your own molds and textures for constructing unusual forms and decorating your creations. Different techniques for color and inlay will be included if time allows.

The full cost of the intensive is $500 plus materials. You can sign up here. Upon signing up I will email you the exact address, a list of tools to bring, and places to stay. You can ship your tools to my studio ahead of time.

This workshop is intermediate to advanced and recommended to people with experience with Hadar’s Clay.

Feel free to email me with specific questions at: hadarjacobson@gmail.com.

Here are a few photos representative of what we will be doing at this workshop. The samples include drawer knobs, salt and pepper shakers, push pins, mini pots, door knocker and switch plate covers but you can use these techniques to make jewelry objects.
