3/29/19 6-9 pm or 3/30/19 10 am-1 pm.
Join renowned local lapidarist and metalsmith, Allen Marquette for a fun filled activity at the Purple Easel Gallery. Participants will learn how to prepare raw sheet copper for etching pre-designed shapes and textures into the surface of the copper. Or you can create your own personal design using special markers! After a short period in the etching solution, the piece is rinsed and dried and the design is highlighted with markers to bring out the details within the piece. After a light sanding your highly detailed piece is ready for making into either a necklace or earrings! Participants will take home the finished piece(s) they make and the knowledge and skill to make their own pieces.
Registration $30.00 and includes all of the materials and tools necessary to complete the jewelry pieces. Limited to 8 participants per class. Call or message us to reserve your space as seating is limited.
