Join us Monday August 26th, 2019 at 7p for our new Hand Cut Acrylic Earrings Workshop with the creator of the class WOLL Jewelry. Learn jewelry making skills while designing and making your own colorful acrylic earrings! In this workshop you'll learn jewelry making basics like sawing, filing and drilling. Acrylic is a great material to start with because it is lightweight, affordable and easy to work with. Start with cutting out a simple shape, filing and sculpting it to your liking. Then move on to a pair of mobile-style or statement earrings. We'll use a drill press to make holes and attach your final pieces to sterling silver findings so you can go home with 2 pairs of earrings that are ready to wear (or gift) and the skills to make more on your own!
Jewelry designer and maker Liz Woll received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Jewelry and Metalsmithing program at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. Since she has worked as a polisher of high-end Swiss watches, as a bench jeweler making sterling silver jewelry, and recently for a laser-cutting and fabrication shop creating prototypes and manufacturing products. Simultaneously, Liz has been building her brand WOLL Jewelry which is known for her whimsical and well-crafted acrylic pieces that are now sold in over 30 retail shops throughout the United States and internationally. Woll created this class based on her years of experience and expertise and it is closely tied to her artistic process.
