Join Anna for this 3 day master class packed with lots of different techniques, featuring an eye motif (hollow from the back), various, sculptural ornaments which create a narrative context for the eye and a bezel set stone (the shape of the stone is your choice).
The eye can be fashioned like a dragon's eye as pictured or perhaps you have a preference for some other design such as an eye of the ocean etc. depending on your preference when comes to additional ornamentation.
This master class is all about wonderful textures, interesting shapes, lots of tricks for creating secure open-work constructions in metal clay, semi hollow forms and working with wet coils. Every student will leave the workshop with their own different "fantasy eye".

Anna Mazoń
Anna has always loved to express herself in many ways, including her beloved modern dance, photography, graphics and poetry, but she didn't come across jewellery making until 2008. This was an amazing discovery which turned her life upside down. Even though she graduated in sociology and psychology, she decided to start working with what has become her passion - designing jewellery and organizing workshops. Today she knows that this was a great decision. Now she can give vent to her creativity and do what she loves most - adorn people both on the outside and inside, by using her unique jewellery to highlight the fact that each of us is different and deserves to underline that uniqueness.

Anna also tries to share her ways of developing creative potential with others by conducting jewellery making courses and workshops. Affirmation of creativity is one of the most important things in her life.
