Creativity Held Hostage
with STEVEN JAMES
Sunday, June 4th
ALL DAY CLASS!
Creativity Held Hostage? Free Yourself with Enameled Ransom Note Jewelry Is something holding your creativity hostage? Come to class and set yourself free! The iconic look of randomly assembled letters in ransom notes is
permanently captured with enameled components you customize yourself. Recreate your name, favorite word, or even your demands with torch-fired glass on custom-cut copper sheet. It is helpful if students have previous torch enameling experience, but it is not a prerequisite. Your components can dangle from a necklace or be attached to form a bracelet or choker. In order to provide the most unique lettering selection, bring one set of letter rubber stamps from your scrapbook collection to share with the rest of the class. Most students can finish shorter words in class, but longer words or sentences may take additional time outside of class.
If students have these items they should feel free to bring them, but Steven will
have most of these for students to share:
metal files, paintbrush, paper for designing notes, letter rubber stamps,
safety glasses, terry-cloth towel, tin snips (French cutting shears may be used
instead of traditional tin snips), two-hole punch, locking tweezers, small bowl
or the bottom half of a two-liter bottle to hold water, glossy magazine sheets,
old toothbrush, plastic lid.
