Sydney Jewellery School is moving to new premises in Parramatta, the geographical centre of Sydney!
The new premises at Suite 7, 2-6 Hunter Street, are a short walk from Parramatta train station, and are located next to the Justice Precinct Carpark which has reasonable rates. Street parking is available in the evening.
Classes resume on Monday, 11 October 2016, with both new classes and the core curriculum on weekends, weekdays and evenings. Have a look at the classes offered by medium/technique or date to see if any appeal to you!
I’m teaching the following at the new premises in the last quarter of 2016. Look out for my other classes plus some new classes in 2017!
Everything you need to know to get started with this incredibly versatile, friendly and economical medium! Topics covered include clay types, tools, conditioning, shaping, texturing, working with colours, curing and finishing.
Go wild with fun, contemporary beads and design possibilities ranging from subtle to striking! This class introduces a variety of textured and patterned beads in shapes including rounds, hemispheres and pods. It also explores practical aspects such as conserving clay and making beads lighter.
Learn how to use a wide variety of materials to decorate and embellish polymer clay surfaces. Techniques covered include smooth and patterned mica powder crackle finishes, tricks with metal leaf and metal foil, stenciled and screenprinted effects and image transfers, as well as ways to finish decorated surfaces to protect your designs.
A one-day introduction to canework, where designs are constructed as rods (canes) which can be reduced to any size and then sliced to reveal the pattern for use. Learn a variety of component canes and see how they can be combined to create more complex designs including a geometric cane, a flower cane, an “electric shock” pattern, a retro cane, and a kaleidoscope cane. You’ll also learn how to use your canes directly and in veneers, and even what to do with the leftovers!
