Locals Love Art: Resin-Cast Jewelry with Tara Carter | Tuesday & Wednesday, February 5 & 6
Learn the incredibly versatile techniques of resin casting to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Using clear resin, students can encase almost any small object, from tiny family portraits and artwork to flowers, feathers and heirlooms, to create pendants, earrings and more. An assortment of interesting items will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring their own. Once cast, hardened pieces will be sanded and polished and then assembled with jewelry findings to become finished wearable art. All students come away ready-to-wear pieces and the skills to create more on their own. Bring tiny photos, letters, interesting papers, dried natural materials, trinkets, and anything else you’d like to incorporate into your resin castings.
