Danny Wade and his gorgeous artisan stamps are coming back to The Makery for a two-day stamping extravaganza you won’t want to miss! We’ll spend day one with the master learning how to get a deep, crisp impression using different types of stamps. He’ll walk us through several layout and design methods, and the techniques and use of tools for balanced stamping. And he’ll show us to use the two piece stamp sets that create repousse-type dimension! We’ll end the day with an introduction to the stamps we’ll be using to create our own unique mandala design for a gorgeous sterling silver cuff. Day two will be all about learning how to build complex customized designs using just two stamps. We’ll test and perfect our layouts before we create a sample piece out of heavy gauge copper. Then we’ll finish up by reproducing our design on smooth, sleek sterling silver and forming it into a unique handmade cuff.
This is two full days of instruction with plenty of time for you to test drive and troubleshoot new skills with Danny, so it’s perfect for all levels of makers, even if you’ve never made jewelry before. You will leave with at least two completed cuffs, one in copper and one in sterling silver. And since the use of all tools and materials is included in your fee, all you have to do is show up and have fun!
