Bard Graduate Center

Bard Graduate Center has begun holding public workshops. The first one they are trying out is a three weekend jewelry class I am taking. The first class was today! The workshop is focused on historical processes in jewelry. The lecture and hands on work was all about historic, ancient jewelry practices, from original Stone Age and Bronze Age tools to granulation and wire making. It was incredible to learn how early wire was made and to see an artist's incredible granulation work.
