Antensives are geared towards students who have some experience with jewelry making, and are particularly helpful when prospective applicants have a medium they'd like to learn to work in, or a specific project in mind. I have taught intensives with children, and with adults, in varying levels of jewelry making, from wire wrapping to lost wax casting, to everything in between.Think of it as a small, intimate, independent study, but instead of a multiple week program of a few hours each week, this is multiple hours, squeezed into just one day. Our studio boasts a wide array of equipment and materials. As this is a smaller instruction program, we will be sending out an email questionnaire prior to class commencement to ensure that we have all of the necessary raw materials on site to complete the projects/learn the skill set. For more advanced students, it is nice to note that we do have several GRS Benchmates in house, as well as a GraverMach exclusively for student use, which means, dependent on prior experience and skill level, intensives could include advanced stone setting work such as bead setting, thread-set and pave.
