PENCIL RENDERING DESIGNS FOR JEWELRY AND HOLLOWWARE

 

VENICE, ITALY June 13-19, 2010

 

Join Master Silversmith Valentin Yotkov for a workshop at a magnificent 15th century Palazzo in the heart of Venice overlooking the Grand Canal. This newly renovated Palazzo is listed in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World directory.

 

Our workroom is the spacious, elegantly decorated music room which has walls covered in murals and a high ceiling that boasts a beautiful fresco. This room provides plenty of examples demonstrating how drawing and shading are used to create dimension.

The workshop will help you develop skills critically important for you as a jeweler and metalsmith. The focus of our study will be on creating a master drawing of a jewelry or hollowware design using light and shadow.

 

Creating dimension through shading will enable you to see how that design will appear when executed in metal by repousse, wax carving or any other jewelry fabrication technique.

 

You can use this drawing to show a client how a piece of jewelry will look when completed in metal.

 

Previous drawing experience is not required.
