These can be used to hang in windows, on your door, or as a necklace to clebrate the Irish in all of us! You will learn: sawing, piercing, filing, sanding, hammer texturing, stamping, how to make jump rings, and how to patina metal green.

There will be a materials list for basic items to be brought by students, such as face mask and eye protection, pen and pencil, paper or sketchbook. Metal and other art supplies are provided. If you have a particular Celtic Knot or Clover design you would like to use for class, please make a black and white copy in the size you want your piece to be. (no larger than 2.5" X 2.5" please).

Brandon Harrell holds a BFA from ETSU and an MFA from Bowling Green State University, both focused on jewelry and metalsmithing. She has instructed at Toledo Museum of Art, the Idea Factory in Columbus, Ohio, and other galleries around the country. "When I watched others demo this craft in school, I felt like this was not just a skill to be learned, but magic that I desired the ability to do myself." says Brandon.
