Program Description

In the hands of imaginative craftspeople, jewelry can be more than a visual aesthetic adornment.  Forged out the right materials, it can invoke pleasing experiences in scent, touch, and taste.  This winter join MAD for an afternoon-long, hands-on workshop in constructing jewelry that titillates all the senses.  From using precious metal clay to crafting tactile jewelry, creating works out of sugar glass, and using the 16th-century technique of fashioning herb and spice necklaces, “Senses and Sensibilities: Jewelry Workshops in Sensory Materials” enables everyone to try their hand working with new  materials and techniques to create their very own sensory-expanding wearable wonder.
