On June 26-30, 2017 – Boris will teach Jewelry/Metals for Teen Week at Touchstone Center for Crafts near Pittsburgh, PA. This session is designed towards those in grades 9-12.
Here is a link to the Teen Outreach Program: http://www.touchstonecrafts.org/Teen-Outreach-Program.
In this metals course, you will use selfies to create wearable art (brooches, pendants, rings). Through lively demonstrations, we will explore the basics of simple metal fabrication (sawing, filing, riveting, soldering, forging, polishing, finishing, and simple stone setting). You are welcome to experiment and will be expected to finish at least one wearable “selfie”.
Boris Bally is a Swiss-trained metalsmith/designer working in Providence, Rhode Island where he maintains his small studio business, Bally Humanufactored, LLC. Recently, Boris was interviewed for the Smithsonian Institution, Archive of American Art: Oral History Project, part of the Nanette Laitman Grant.
