Barbara Mann: Keum Boo and Roller Printing Studio Experience
January 20, 2018, 10:00 – 4:00 pm

The Lyndon House Arts Center’s Open Studio Membership Program is pleased to offer a day with jeweler Barbara Mann.  Mann will lead a day in the studio workshopping the Keum Boo and Roller Printing techniques.  This will be held on January 20th from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.  This activity is open to new and current Open Studio Members.

Barbara Mann is a renowned metal and jewelry artist and was recently featured in Ornament Magazine. She has taught for many years through UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, UGA Studies Abroad Programs in Italy and Costa Rica, as well as Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts and various workshop across the southeast.

This informative and fun one-day experience is suitable for all levels from beginner to advance. Open Studio Members will experiment with the ancient Asian metalwork technique of keum boo, which involves bonding 24 karat gold to silver. In combination with learning the bonding method, students will learn to add texture to metal using a jeweler’s rolling mill to emboss the surface of metal using materials such as lace, snakeskin, cornhusks, etc.

An Open Studio Membership is required in addition to a materials fee of $50. (Includes 24-karat gold foil, sterling silver sheet, copper sheet, brass sheet, blades, ear wires and pendant bails).

Please note that space is limited to 8 participants.  A reservation sign-up sheet will be available January 11th.  Please visit the Lyndon House to reserve your spot.  A current membership is a requirement.
