Textile & Metal Jewelry with Joanna Gollberg
AUGUST 1 — Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
$95 members, $105 non-members

Let’s experiment with Asheville jewelry artist Joanna Gollberg! In this class, participants will use simple tools to form the base of a jewelry piece — whether it’s a brooch, necklace, earrings or bracelet. The base will then be decorated with textile fibers. The idea is to create a finished piece in a day, while exploring the two very different mediums of metal and fiber. The class will also explore professional jewelry cold connections and findings using wire, as well as a variety of textile and sewing techniques, including simple whip-stitching, appliqué and embroidery. Students should bring: ideas, sketches, Pinterest boards and an open mind!

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. All materials and snacks are included in the cost. Class size is limited and advance registration is required. Please register online (see links above) or contact the Museum at 828.253.3227. Registration deadline is Friday, July 24.
