Class Description: Do you remember lying under a tree in summer and watching the dappled shadows dance across the grass?
The sparkle of water droplets on a hidden spidersweb, and other secrets reveals as you changed your perspective, or the light moved with the wind in the leaves.
In this class we’ll be creating a pierced dome to hide the beautiful secret stone within- hidden under the dappled shadows.
Design, piercing, soldering, setting and polishing are all techniques we will be addressing in class, so bring your inner child and their imagination to play Under the Dappled Sky.
