Fall Festivities at Flux Metal Arts
Fall is an exciting time at Flux Metal Arts. Our gallery is full with local artisan jewelry, and the season is filled special guests and events to inspire and feed the creative spirit.
We welcome Maryland artist Eric Burris September 12-13 for his workshop “Small Scale Mokume Gane.” A technique born out of Japanese metalsmithing, Mokume Gane translates in English as “wood eye metal”. It is a process where two or more different metals are stacked and laminated through diffusion bonding. Learn how to forge and pattern your own Mokume Gane, and then fabricate a seamless hollow ring utilizing the washer method. During the weekend, join us in the gallery for a special Trunk Show and Sale of his Mokume Gane Jewelry.
We also look forward to New Jersey artist Jill Hurant October 17-18 for her workshop “Fused Loop-in-Loop Chains.” This Cleveland native returns home to share how these classical pieces of jewelry are made. Students will be immersed in the fascinating process from beginning to end to make their own fused loop-in-loop chain. During the weekend, join us in the gallery for a special Trunk Show and Sale of her classic inspired silver and gold jewelry.
Flux celebrates its Third Anniversary with two events. Our 3nd Annual Student and Instructor Exhibition opens Friday, November 6. The festive community reception will include door prizes, and the presentation of a people’s choice award. Many works will be available, and it’s a great way to get a jump on your holiday shopping and support local artists.
The anniversary continues on Saturday, November 7 with our Open House. Free mini workshops and demos will be scheduled throughout the day for all to enjoy. Visit fluxmetalarts.com for a complete list of classes and events.
