DeSigN – dEsiGn – DesIgN!

Thomas Mann is celebrating 40 years as a professional artist, but he’s been making jewelry since the early 60s. A high school art department student teacher conducted a jewelry making semester in 1963 and Tom’s experience in that class fueled an intense interest that continues till this day.

Take this Design Master Class with Tom and pump up your jewelry design skill set with a jam packed demo and hands-on jewelry design throwdown. You’ll be given a design challenge that will lead into the process of developing a personal design vocabulary of techniques. materials and concepts. Then, fabricate a piece that demonstrates that vocabulary.

Tom will demonstrate principle techniques and then assist participants in developing their personal approaches in keeping with the mission of the class.

He’ll also be doing a Saturday Night Live Dining event  (optional, additional $30) with fantastic height-of-summer produce. Tom will plan and prepare that event and hopes you’ll be able to join us.

It’s a three-day intensive exploration of your design potential.  So, are you ready for design throwdown?
