                            Metal and Encaustics Journal

Let the Journey Begin.....


There once was a house....

Some are built with straw , 
some with  sticks, 
and bricks. 
This one was built with metal ,
and what?
Encaustics!
I am so over the top excited to share my new online workshop for 
2014!!
Enaustic and  Metal Journal ,
                                                The Journey Begins.....
We will build this metal assemblage cover with 
no solder ,
and 
no glue. 
We're- Going- All- In.

 Oh, the wonderful textures! 
And I will show you how to get them , 
without spending a bunch of money on special tools. 
Putting on,
 taking off,
adding of, 
as it all comes together, we will be exploring 
many,
many, 
many
 different ways to achieve wonderful interesting textures,
 and Gorgeous rich, deep , patinas on both the metals and encaustics, 
combined together to
create a journal worthy of antiquitous distinction !
(yes I did make that word up :)




And, who lived inside  this lovely house?
I will help you discover your house's " story", as we  
dive into more encaustic exploration and create the time worn pages themed for each
person that lived within it while exploring some interesting substrates.




I have never worked in encaustics is that ok? 
Of course! This is an explorative journey to find out all the wounderous things that can happen when you add encaustics into the "mix" of "mixed media"
I also go over all the basics of what works best when it comes to working with encaustic mediums,
 and a short version of 
the very long history of the different applications of encaustics in art .  

Your finished journal will tell a complete visual ,and archival, history of everyone
who lived within your house, As you include artifacts, and relics , along with written word. All 
with the exciting fun of  exploring and experimenting the huge magic  of possibilities of  creating with  encaustics to build a  wonderful world of collage and assemblages .   I will also be showing some creative ways of how to 
add  the appearance  of 100 years to some new items for" instant artifacts!"
 (you know I love to do that!)

 what comes in this  workshop?
 
LOTS of  beautiful step out photos!!!

LOTS of  step by step, high quality, high definition  videos! 
There is over 10 hours of Super creative Fun video instruction  in this workshop!!!

Videos broken down into small  easy labeled segments ,so you can go to 
exactly which step you want to see at any time!


PDFs of In depth resource list to go with your supply list, letting you know the best sources I have found for any supplies that need to be purchased. 

An online classroom  with  personal access to classroom 24/7

Online photo sharing with class (only if you wish to )

Access to instructor via email for the whole time. 

You will have the workshop for an entire year :)




 
Details details details:
please note that you must have high speed internet , and basic computer skills
to take this online workshop. 

Shari , what does that mean?
Well,
 it means that you have to know how to get the latest version of your browser ( firefox, chrome etc etc. ) ,have the latest version of adobe flash, know how to access a blog,
be able to clear your system of all the cookies (not the yummie kind), and how to "bookmark" a website.

And guess what ? 
I am always very happy to help walk you through things like bookmarking the site step by step, and all the basic jazz if you need help you can always email me, BUT I am not a computer technology specialist, nor am I in your office with you  ,or sitting next to you wherever you are  with my bunny slippers ( although I probably wish I was) , so I can't  see first hand what is going on  with your computer .
  I just make stuff, and share how to make stuff  . :)))) 
My host server is Vimeo . They have very high quality , high definition , easy  viewing , and I have
found with past workshops are quite reliable.  

 
After purchase I will send confirmation for your class slot within 24 hours (usually within a couple hours). I will be sending out  workshop resource lists on where I have found best sources and pricing for supplies,  and supply list  
.
Great thing about this workshop NO huge investment  , No big equipment/ tool purchases . A few items we will need for the foundation of our house, after that on your journey you will become a hunter /gatherer, an explorer, historian, and curator of the world you will create within..

 Broken China Jewelry Online Workshop

I am so excited to finally be able to offer this online workshop to you !
I have been teaching how to create broken china jewelry and other mixed media art and metal work classed for approximately 10 years. And, now with the help of technology , I can offer it to you right in your home!

That's right sit back, and relax (bunny slippers are a must :) and enjoy this self paced workshop on how to create beautiful broken china jewelry that you can make into pendants, charms, brooches, bracelets or rings , you name it!

ALL The Deets:
This workshop will show you from start to finish how to create broken china pendants from vintage china.

~cutting
~framing/
~soldering
~full proof jump ring session

 Added bounus!
~learn how to add some vintage bling !

What if I have never soldered before?
This workshop is perfect! This workshop goes over all of the basics of equipment use , and soldering from start to finished piece. You can play the videos over and over, at your own pace while you create your beautiful pieces with no time pressure of a live classroom. I always say I will repeat steps over, and over, as long as someone wants me to in my workshops. Now you can have me do it 100 times !(if you dont get tired of my voice LOL)

I have soldered before , what will I learn from this workshop?
This workshop goes over all of the basics of soldering, and also goes into detail on how to create the beautiful beading/or solder pearls. There is also a detailed segment of a full proof method of adding jump rings, and even how to add some vintage bling to your solder work.

I have always wanted to solder , but don't even know where to start. It seems like a large expense.

what to buy,
what not to buy ( as it is probably a waist of your money,)

  4. Shari, I want to take ALL your classes. I love all the projects that you create!! Would you say that it would be beneficial to me to take your Broken China Workshop before starting your Solder and Spice Class? I have never soldered anything before and I would like to be a little more familiar before I start your next workshop :) Thank you for your feedback! Also, was is the deadline for early registration?

    1. Hi Laura,
      If you have never soldered before, and want to get comfortable with your iron and tools first , then definitely the basic "Broken China Jewelry" course is very good for that,as I go into A LOT of really in depth detail about all the tools and equipment and how to use each item, and why they are beneficial. I also go over each step from breaking and shaping , and basic soldering skills, before we go on to the pearling, and adding the vintage goodies!

      The deadline for early registration for "Solder and Spice" 55.00 price is through midnight October 1st. The great thing is both classes share (almost) the same materials ,with just a few exciting and super fun things added, and pretty much exact same tools!

      If you have any other questions , just let me know :)
      You can also email me at
      shari.replogle@insightbb.com
      Hope you are having a great weekend!
      Shari

  5. wow, a lot of great stuff there.
    I think without long time practice, one can not solder so well.
    You are a real master of soldering.

  6. Hello Shari,

    Your online workshops look great...am I still able to take the Broken China Jewelry class? Looks like it ongoing? Will it work with my ipad? I do have a good laptop if needed. Also, once I purchase it will I have access to it indefinitely? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ok...I'm really not too clueless! Sorry for my previous message...... I saw all the info in the blog! I've been reading a little too long today and began to get lazy. Anyway...now the only question I have is whether the ipad works with the videos or would a laptop be better? Thanks again!
