Para 1: When we think of jewelry we often think of precious metals, and complicated techniques. Additionally, if you make non-metal jewelry, beads are likely your main material. However, there is a world of alternative material and construction options that break these boundaries. We will explore how you can make your own beads and pendants out of repurposed materials and objects. This workshop will explore sewn, collaged, and beaded construction methods. Whether you are a seasoned jewelry maker looking to expand your knowledge of alternative and sustainable materials, or you have never cut a pattern or strung a bead in your life, this class is for you. You will leave this class with a new understanding of jewelry. At the Fine Arts Institute, we open the doors of UK'S School of Art and Visual Studies to our local artistic community as a place to learn new or expand on existing creative skills. We offer adults 18 years and over a variety of non-credit community education courses and workshops. Our goal is to provide community learning opportunities that utilize the university’s state-of-the-art facilities. From woodworking, metalworking, ceramics, textiles, digital art, floral design, black and white photography and more, the FAI wants you to push your creative boundaries in our creative setting. If you have any questions, please contact the Fine Arts Institute Coordinator, Carey Gough at [email protected] or (859)218-5984.
