Metal Bead Workshop

with Alice Carroll


This workshop each student will make a beautiful silver and brass bead out of sheet metal. We will learn to shape the metal into a square, oval, round, hexagon or rectangle form by hammering. The top and the bottom will be textured using a rolling mill, stamps or hammers. We will discuss surface decoration while learning how to solder, shape and form. It will be able to be worn on any kind of chain. No experience needed. 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. She came back to Maine in 1994 and has been teaching at Heartwood College of Art, Sanctuary Arts, and River Tree Arts.
