Explore the possibilities and processes of introducing alternative materials into your jewelry and small-object making. Combine concrete with colored dyes to create unique, colorful pieces using traditional and advanced mold-making techniques.


A presentation of Michael’s work and series of demonstrations introduce you to not only the limitless opportunities for incorporating concrete into your practice, but also the techniques involved in making molds, working with concrete as a raw material, and coloring and treating the surface. As you begin to form ideas throughout the week, work more and more hands-on with Michael available for individualized instruction, feedback, and troubleshooting in the completion of your new pieces. If time allows, see how Michael utilizes 3D printed materials in the creation and problem solving of his work. Open to all levels.
