Daylight and Darkroom:  Photographic Techniques for the Jeweler and Metalsmith

Join Andrew Kuebeck as he offers a survey into traditional and experimental photographic techniques and their application in a jewelry and metalsmithing studio practice.  Equally divided between contemporary techniques which are largely digital in nature and light-sensitive historical processes; Kuebeck will guide and help troubleshoot with participants as they explore numerous exciting processes including photo-embossed leather, cyanotypes, enamel decals and tintypes. He will also show participants how these techniques can be used without specialized equipment or facilities, and the many ways they can be adapted for any studio practice.

Lost and Found:  Lost Wax and Found Object Casting 
with Andrew Kuebeck

Participants in this class will learn the limitless possibilities when found objects are used as the source materials for cast jewelry pieces.  This class will address mold making, sealing and assembling objects for casting, as well as a complete overview of the casting process (including investing, spruing, and specialized burnouts).  Many mold making techniques will be demonstrated including plaster, silicon, liquid latex, alginate, and others.  Participants will learn how any source material or object can be used for casting.  Numerous jewelry formats and connection techniques will be discussed and demonstrated enabling participants to create a range of jewelry pieces from their castings.

Picture in Picture in Picture

Fusing enamel to the surface of metal creates infinite opportunities to include imagery into your work. This workshop will focus on digital image creation, manipulation, application, and resolution of enameled jewelry works featuring your own photographic imagery into one or more brooches .  Combining traditional techniques of champlevé, cloisonné, and basse taille with contemporary approaches including enamel decals and photographic image etching & plating; participants will be able to create striking enamel compositions that address the surface of the metal plate, the interior of the enamel as well as the enamel’s surface.  These plates will then be beautifully set into your final brooch using traditional setting and cold connection techniques.
