“Fabric + Fabrication = Jewelry”
Within the last decade there as has been a growing resurgence of artists working with fiber. This revival has also influenced the metalsmithing/jewelry world in a profound way. The workshop will explore themes of nostalgia, haute couture, recycle/reuse, and playfulness. The participants will be introduced to techniques such as needle felting, basic crocheting, and paper casting to create one of-a-kind pieces of jewelry and accessories. There will also be a strong focus on how formal concerns such as scale, repetition, texture, asymmetry, and weight creates meaning within the piece.

Renee Zettle-Sterling is an artist whose studio practice consists of exploring a multiplicity of media and techniques to create small-scale body oriented devices, jewelry, and large site-specific installation. Her training is varied and ranges from studying papermaking/fibers, sculpture/installation to metalsmithing. She has shown her work extensively nationally and internationally. Additionally her work has been published in Metalsmith and American Craft magazines and many of the 500 Series published by Lark Books. She received a BFA in Fibers/Papermaking from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, a MFA in Sculpture/Installation and a MA in Jewelry/Metalsmithing from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. She
is an Associate Professor of Art and Design at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan.
