Classes

On top of our scheduled workshops, we offer the following classes by appointment.

 

 

SILK KNOTTING

$35 + Materials 

Explore with us the difference silk knotting makes. In this class we will use pre-needled silk to knot between pearls or the beads of your choice. Silk is strong, pliable, and has a soft hand with a look all of its own. You will gain experience with multiple tools and learn about the components necessary to knot and finish the ends of this particular medium.

 

COLD CONNECTIONS WITH LEATHER

$35 + Materials 

Punch, rivet, and connect strips of leather with a multitude of metallic elements. You will also have the option to embellish the leather with settings and Swarovski cabochons. 

 

DESIGN & FINISH

$35 + Materials

At Marsh Harbor Studio, we have taken the crimp-to-wire connection a few steps further. In this class you will have the option of designing a bracelet or necklace and learn how to professionally finish off your beaded creation with our four-component connection. This creates a clean look and saves your reputation and hard work, as it provides strength and durability in an aesthetically pleasing way. Your design is only as good as it's finish.

 

BASIC WIRE WRAPPING

$35 + Materials

Learn an approach to basic wire wrapping that you are yet to read about. In this class, we will teach you to use hard wire to attach clasps, combine findings, connect headpins to chain, etc. You will be taken through a series of steps and have the opportunity to practice each step numerous times before the conclusion of the class. After which, you will then have "homework". This technique takes a little practice, but we promise that it will "click", and you will be pleased as ever. Also, apart from sending you home with a new skill, we will provide you with a guide that includes each step of the process attached to it for you to refer to in the event that you get stuck during practice. This is class is taught at a novice level, and it is sure to open a lot of doors in your jewelry endeavors.

 

ALSO, instruction does not cease after your class. In the case that you should need questions answered or technique reinforced, we are always available to you.
