Detailed Course Description
I will be teaching this electroforming class exclusively online for Zurich Glass School. In this initial Terry 1 (Level – beginner to electroforming and refreshers) course I will teach you how to electroform. This is a basic hands-on class that teaches students the fundamentals of electroforming. The focus of this class is to make the student self-sufficient in the process of electroforming by understanding the science behind electroforming. Students will learn to set-up an electroforming tank and set a DC- power converter also known as a rectifier. We will electroform inert materials such as glass, reactive materials such as a shells, dried leaves and flowers. Proper gluing and sealing/treatment will be discussed and demonstrated. Class projects will include an electroformed bead, flower and shell. The student will be able to set up their own electroforming tank at home after this class and further explore the process of electroforming.
This course consists of three Saturday morning zoom sessions every week (two sessions of four hours and a final session of two hours) starting in December, there will be an accountability group where we all meet to show our successes and failures – You will also be signed up to the ‘watch back’ facility on Terry 1 channel on the ZGS website so as you can re-watch any and all of my demos. Once class is over you have exclusive access to her demonstrations for six months to really get those techniques embedded in your minds. Class includes two complimentary one on one consultations over zoom with Terry henry for personal help with the projects. You will also receive technical handouts which act as a handy reminder for the demonstrations.
