Making A Spectacle!

Details

Historically, jewelers were partners with opticians in the design and making of eyeglasses. In this fast paced one-day workshop, we’ll explore historical through contemporary spectacles through slides, samples, and demos. We’ll learn how jeweler's techniques are applicable to making eyeglasses. Learn tricks from the optical indus­try about holding lenses in frames, coloring lenses, and explore inventive approaches to creating hinges and other mechanisms. This is NOT a hands-on workshop; it is an exploration of a how to understand pro­cesses that are specific to the low-tech fabrication of eyeglasses for intermediate to skilled jewelers.

Prerequisites: While beginners are welcome, intermediate to advanced jewelers and metalsmiths will get the most out of this workshop.
