Jewellery from sublimation printed metal with Anna Davern
Sunday 19th October, 10am – 4pm
$175 + $45 material fee
Sublimation printing is a very exciting and simple technique of transferring images onto metal and plastic using heat. In this class, electronic files of images and photos will be printed and then transferred to a variety of plastic coated sheets of metal. This class is suitable for experienced makers as well as non-makers and a variety of techniques will be taught to then create items of jewellery from the printed material focusing on cold joining techniques. No jewellery experience required.
A $45 material fee will be payable to the tutor on the day. Students will receive a pack of sheet metal and pre-cut metal shapes and a variety of images to print.
There may be time for students to print their own images. If you think you would like to do this, please prepare an A4 size file at 300dpi in a photo editing software (Adobe Photoshop preferred) NOT MICROSOFT WORD.
