November 1-3 and 8-10: Radical Riveting with Peggy Carvell for ages 11-16. Do you have great ideas for homemade jewelry, but no place to make your creations come to life? Radical Riveting is the class for you! Using cold connecting fabrication, we will learn to saw, drill, rivet, and wire to create one-of-a-kind art jewelry. Students will also include metal, faux bone, and found objects into their creations.
Paper Making with Deanna Bowdish, for ages 10-16, November 15-17, skip Thanksgiving week, thenNovember 29-December 1. In this intensive we will explore the art of paper making. We will learn the process of making paper, how handmade paper can be used, and the fun that can be had creating and incorporating other materials into our paper. We will create our own handmade paper using recycled materials, natural fibers and dyes. Students will be able to take all of their paper with them and even create their own book. As a bonus, if you also sign up for the Printmaking class (see below) you will be able to print on your own handmade paper.

Printmaking with Deanna Bowdish, for ages 10-16, December 6-8 and 13-15. This class offers students the opportunity to work with printmaking, specifically block printing, where we will carve an image into the block and print from the surface. As a bonus if you take the Paper Making class, you will be able to print on your own handmade paper. No experience is necessary, a creative mind and an eagerness to learn are the only skills required. Be prepared to get dirty (inks will not wash out of clothing but are water-based and non-toxic)!!
