Spinner Ring


with Alice Carroll

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 25, 2023 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

Make your own fun ring with moving parts. Great ring to wear if you like to figit. This is a beginner workshop that will focus on learning how to size your ring and your metal, textures and soldering. Each student will have time to try stamping, roller printing, and hammered textures. The ring will be textured, then soldered and shaped, polished and at the very end we will add the spinners to the ring, so that they move freely. No experience necessary, all materials and tools supplied. Alice Carroll, who has a BFA from Maine College of Art and an MFA from Rochester Technology of Art, School for American Crafts, was an Artist in Residence at Penland School of Crafts in NC for two years.
