September at Sievers features classes in four different types of weaving and one each in jewelry-making, garment construction, willow basketry and willow furniture. The month began with the study of color as it applies to weaving in Judie Yamamoto’s Weaving The Rainbow class.
From color theory exercises and examples to the opportunity to weave samples for reference along with a project of their choice, Judie shared her excellent understanding and sense of color with the class.
In Kay Rashka’s Metalwork Jewelry Boot Camp, although the sheets of copper, silver and brass shine, it’s really the faces of the students showing and wearing the jewelry they’ve made that shine brightest. Whether hand-etched, drilled, stamped, layered or textured (or all of the above), these one-of-a-kind pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings are as riveting as they are beautiful.
Someone suggested a class in building your own jewelry box as these special pieces need a special place!
Starting today are Jo Campbell-Amsler’s Willow Baskets to Grow & Weave and Daryl Lancaster’s Garment Construction Intensive class. It promises to be a week of sunshine, warm temperatures, learning, sharing and creating….September at Sievers!
