This class is centered around the extravagant jewelry of the Gilded Age, inspired by the fabulous holdings of Margaret Crocker. Designers from Design with Fire Studios will help you construct glass beaded jewelry work and establish your skill foundations in wire manipulation, balance, and clasp fabrication.

Note: The Crocker is taking measures to ensure in-person class participants maintain appropriate distance to limit and/or avoid close contact with others. Among other things, we are limiting the number of people in our classes, as well as monitoring and marking the distance between class participants. In-person participants must wear a mask — including those who have already been vaccinated — practice social distancing, and comply with health and safety protocols.

Instructor bio:

Instructor Linnea Wong (Design with Fire) arrived in Davis, California in 1996. Along with Patrick Mullen, she teaches, practices and explores the wonderful world of glass. Glass is a symphony of happy accidents,” says Wong. “Color, nature and my family inspire my designs. I start with sketches, then color selection. I love glass and sharing my passion for the process with others.” You can see her work, which in recent years has returned to the clean Scandinavian lines of her heritage, at The Artery in downtown Davis.
