    Tuition: $265
    Lehigh Valley Arts Council members, receive a 25% discount.
    Location: Penn State Lehigh Valley, 2809 Saucon Valley Rd. Center Valley PA

    This workshop offers the opportunity to explore the design concepts and fabrication techniques important to an assemblage approach to jewelry making. FOS introduces an unusual cold connection system from which, students can extrapolate other jewelry engineering solutions.
    Mann will lead workshop participants in the creation of their own found object creations. Students are encouraged to bring photographs (old, new or magazine) and found objects such as buttons, heirloom jewelry or materials they find on the streets or in nature, and industrial materials (chain, electronic parts, etc.). to incorporate in the design and fabrication of a personal wearable expression.
    Note: this workshop requires participants to know “How to Saw” using a jewelers saw. Depending on the skill level and experience of the participants, Tom may spend the first several hours of an FOS instructing his “Learn to Saw” technique. In a One Day workshop this can consume a substantial percentage of the day.

Topics will include Tom’s personal artistic and artreprenurial development and a little bit about the history of the arts and craft movement of the 20th Century, and the dramatically changing economic environment for the arts and artists.  This talk is directed to art students, their parents and teachers, amateurs trending towards professionalism, the practicing professional artist and the art consuming public.

    This event is a part of the Tom’s Artist in Residence in Allentown and his Trajectory Heart Project that is located in Downtown Allentown during the month of July.  Sponsored by Penn State Lehigh Valley Arts
