8 Sessions, Thursdays, 6:-8:30 pm, Jan 21- March 11, 2021
This class will be an in-depth introduction to jewelry making. While making two class projects, students will learn the fundamentals of working with metal and designing pieces that begin to hone in on their own artistic voice. Techniques that will be taught include sawing, drilling, filing, forming with pliers and hammers, soldering, finishing, a stone setting, texturing, making jump rings, and more.
Previous jewelry making experience is not required. Copper will be provided for the first project. The materials fee will depend on the student’s individual project designs and discussed during class.

8 sessions, Mondays, 4:30-6 pm, January 11-March 1, 2021
This fun 8-week class, Thinking Through Metal, is for kids 11-13 years old. They will learn the basics of metalworking and explore ideas that intersect life and metal objects. Students will make a variety of wearable and non-wearable projects. It is a great way for kids to connect with each other, be creative, and work with their hands (and have a break from the screens) in a safe studio environment. The cost of the class includes the material fee. No experience necessary.
“It is so much fun to watch the kids express themselves in metal while learning how to make something new.” -Heidi Lowe

SET AN INTENTION for 2021 and RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH US!
Throughout January, Heidi Lowe Gallery is offering Rings of Intention Classes, which are perfect for setting the stage for the new year.
“This is my favorite class of the year as it combines looking inward, creating and a fun way to bring people together.” -Heid Lowe
During the Rings of Intention Class, students will take time to connect inward and learn to make their own silver rings. Each student will come up with a word of intention; a word that embodies what each student wants to cultivate, nourish and focus on in life as we move forward. The word of intention will be incorporated into a silver band ring that students will create from start to finish. Everyone will leave class with a wearable, handmade reminder of their intention.

Stacey Lee Webber was born in Indianapolis, IN, in 1982. She received her BS at Ball State University, Muncie, IN, (2005) and her MFA at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI (2008). In 2009, she was awarded a yearlong residency at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL. In order to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time artist, she later moved to Philadelphia, PA., where after four bustling years of teaching while working as a production jeweler, her dream came to fruition in 2015. Webber's work pushes the boundaries of everyday recognizable objects to the point of unidentifiable. Through material, she strives to make artwork that challenges viewers’ preconceived notions of the objects that surround them.
AIMEE PETKUS "My background in geology combined with my desire to create, manifests itself in the work that I make. I take the unique, magical, and mesmerizing world of rocks, gems and minerals, and present them in a way that sparks a curiosity in the stones that are being worn. I am inspired by the vast canvas nature provides, where one will find geometric patterns, order and repetitive elements along with haphazard, disordered chaos. I combine geometric and organic forms to show the duality of art and science within my life, but also to mimic these juxtapositions as found in nature."
ANNA JOHNSON “Through adornment I strive to highlight the incredibly high value of nature. Jewelry has provided me with a platform to interpret a survey of plant and animal life mixed with gems and minerals in a way that creates a direct and intimate connection with its viewers and wearers. As an artist my intention is to create soulful pieces that present nature in an...
The objective of Earrings Galore is to show rich and diverse examples of earrings made by emerging and established studio jewelers.
