Sculpting and Casting Jewelry

Sculpt on a small scale and discover the secrets of creating jewelry with found objects and epoxy resin. Visit the exhibition Unique by Design: Contemporary Jewelry in the Donna Schneier Collection to unpack the mysteries of innovative jewelry techniques, and spend time in the studio experimenting with casting resin and molds. Explore the use of mold making for small production runs and the use of molds for variations on a theme. Take home samples and a piece of wearable art.

This workshop meets in the Met's galleries and studios. Participants must be 18 or older. All levels welcome. Space is limited. Purchase tickets below or at the Great Hall box office. Registration ends at noon on the Tuesday before the first day of the course.
