I am so excited to announce that a very dear person & an awesome Artist, Terry Henry will be joining us at Jelveh Designs Studio, May 18 & 19, 2019. The workshop she is teaching is called Copper Electroforming Components Class For Artists of all kinds!!!
Here is a bit about Terry Henry,
After a career as a scientist Terry Henry answered her hearts call to turn to art full time and since November 2011 she hasn’t looked back! Terry is a native of California from the community of Los Gatos, she attended college at San Jose State University where she started out as and art student, however her concern for making a living resulted in a career path change to earth science; though all the while nourishing the desire to be and artist. Terry’s art embraces science, as she is best known for her electroforming work, which combines real flowers, insects, fossils with inorganic materials and her lampwork floral designs. Terry’s extensive teaching experience to adult learns in the field of art and science makes her class easy to understand and follow.
Teaching experience includes a State Single Subject Teaching Credentials in Art and Science and a Lifetime Community College Teaching Credential. I started teaching science in 1976 at State and Community College level, and art and science at the K-8 level. I teach flameworking, wire wrapping, and electroforming to adult learners across the country.
Copper Electroforming Components Class
For Artists and Mad Scientists
Class Description: Come join me as we turn found objects into copper components to be used in your own creations. Explore the endless possibilities of copper electroforming in an easy to understand format. In this class we will electroform a flower, a shell with a pearl, and texturize and decorate a glass bead. We will spend time discussing the process of electroforming, sealing and protecting stones, and gluing techniques. Projects will need to process 18-24 hours or more for proper copper deposition. Students will need to return to the classroom at a later time clean and pick up projects unless other arrangements have been made.
