I LOVE workshops!
My recent experience at a multi-day-multi-discipline art workshop where there were short workshops in 4 different art media - thrown clay pottery, hand built sculpture, paper mache sculpture, and mechanisms in jewelry.
Since I work in jewelry, I spent 3.5 days in fabricating metal mechanisms - hinges and catches.
Tom Muir - hinges, clasps and other mechanisms.
Two pieces that I worked on - an integral hinge fabricated in 14 gauge brass sheet and brass tubing. Key catch is nickel silver .
We never went hungry!
