Workshop Gallery Artists Foundation at Brooklyn Workshop Gallery is very pleased to announce that Susan Domelsmith of DLC/Dirty Librarian Chains is teaching with us this fall! Here is a rare opportunity to learn how to repurpose and design new pieces from a master artist. Susan's designs have been featured in most major fashion magazines and are regularly featured in photo shoots. Try a google and you'll see. Or, take a look at her website to see her work and learn more about this artist at www.dirtylibrarianchains.com
What happens during the DLC workshops?
Students bring in jewelry that they no longer wear or heirloom pieces that they would like to get more use from. Susan teaches jewelry making basics, as well as the importance and environmental impact of using found materials. From there, each student creates his or her own piece with her assistance.
Happening just before the holidays, the workshop is a great way to make gifts and use the bits and fragments of jewelry we all keep in that box in our closet. You can also re-design the jewelry you never wear!
There will be tools and materials for you to work with if you do not have your own. Do note that additional supplies will be on hand. There will be enough supplied free for you to make plenty of work and some special pieces available for re-purposing at very reasonable prices.
Coffee, tea and light snacks are served.
Children are welcome if they are participating with a parent or caregiver. (Please do call if this is a consideration to discuss details.)
Susan was a participant in HANDMADE, a artisan retail project for Holidays 2010-2011 sponsored by Workshop Gallery Artists Foundation who makes their home at Brooklyn Workshop Gallery. We are so happy to have Susan teaching with us for the first time!
Additionally, Susan's own designs will be available for purchase at the gallery that week with an open house trunk show on Sunday, November 3, 12 noon to 5:00 p.m.
A little bit about Brooklyn Workshop Gallery:
