[Workshop] Weaving with Metal


#1

Award-winning jewelry designer Barbara Berk will teach a 7-session
course, “Weaving With Metal,” at University of California Santa Cruz
Extension in Cupertino, CA. Tuesdays from 7-10 pm, February 6 -
March 27, 2007. Through demonstrations, slides, discussion and
hands-on work, this introductory course will present a variety of
weaving techniques that can be used to create jewelry, sculpture,
functional objects and wall art. Using copper, brass, and aluminum
sheet and wire, students will execute samples of flat and textured
weaves, rectangular and non-rectangular weaves, and flat and
3-dimensional forms. Students will explore color, pattern and scale,
and experiment with forming, deforming and manipulating the woven
metal. Students may choose to expand their library of samples or may
create finished piece(s). No bench skills are required, and all
levels of metal and/or fiber experience are welcome. A materials kit
will be included; students may purchase additional metal from the
instructor during the course. For more please see Weaving
