Found, Framed & Fastened: The Brooch

Instructor: Joshua Kosker

Discover your own material language and get something on your chest! Through the format of the brooch, you will investigate how a found object can embody an experience, evoke an emotion, and convey a personal narrative. Placing equal emphasis on the structural mechanics behind the brooch, participants will explore inventive mounting solutions for non-traditional materials, while creating intelligent pin back mechanisms to make wearable art. The instructor will present various pin stem assemblies, catches, and small-scale fabrication techniques, including wireframe construction, forming, creative prong setting, riveting and other cold-connection methods. Participants are encouraged to come with an imaginative, experimental approach to craft and jewelry making. Advanced Beginner to Intermediate
