Michael Sturlin: Forged Bracelets, a jewerly-making retreat at Wild Rice Retreat
Refine your metalsmithing skills and create an expressive series of hand wrought stacking cuffs and dramatic forged bangle bracelets. Participants will explore the malleability of metal using hammers, anvils, blocks, and mandrels. Refine your hammer skills as you forge, bend, shape planish and texture metal, creating a vocabulary of sculptural forms as a visual reference library.
Enjoy the beauty of Lake Superior, healthy locally-sourced meals, and retreat center amenities, all in peaceful surroundings in the woods and on the water. Lodging packages available.
