Forging Metal, Body & Spirit: Yoga & Silversmith Workshop
Jun 25 | sun | 1:00PM - 6:00PM
All levels welcome
Join instructor Jenny Karns, for this newly designed combination class of yoga and jewelry making, by forging metal, body and spirit. Jenny is a physical therapist and uses yoga in her private practice. First meet in the Silversmith Studio for orientation, then begin the workshop on the Center lawn outside w/ gentle yoga and core work for 45 minutes to open the channels of energy, alignment and creativity. Then we will fabricate 23 pieces of inner spirit, power jewelry. Make a ring, cuff bracelet, pendant or earrings out of sterling silver, copper &/or brass. Learn to saw, file, hammer, stamp words or engrave designs, patina and polish your personally unique pieces. Then we will finish the session with more yoga and movement therapy for 30 min to relax and realign.
If it rains we will hold the yoga practice inside the studio. No experience in yoga or silversmithing is necessary. Please be aware of your own health risks, limits and ability.
Copper/brass is included in class cost. Silver and stones may be purchased: estimate $5 - $35
Bring your yoga mat, layered comfortable weather appropriate clothing, a healthy snack/lunch, and water. Extra mats are available!
