In this workshop you will learn Amy and Mary’s unique method of controlling the design of the formed cuff. Amy Mower and Mary Murphy developed their technique after taking a three day Bonny Doon workshop. Through extensive experimentation, they developed their own system that produced predictable results, eliminating excessive waste using six inch blanks. They will show you different methods of texturing and imprinting the metal before forming, to achieve a totally unique piece.
Through collaboration Amy and Mary developed the tools you will be using to form the cuff. These tools are available for free during the workshop. (You may purchase the kit from them, but it is not required for the workshop.) They will provide the metal, texturing tools, and forming tools for you to use!
The current kit fee is $45 and is included in your tuition. This may increase if the cost of silver continues to go up!
