Jewellery from sublimation printed metal - Anna Davern
Sublimation printing is a very exciting and simple technique of transferring images onto metal and plastic using heat. In this class, electronic files of images and photos will be printed and then transferred to a variety of plastic coated sheets of metal. This class is suitable for experienced makers as well as non-makers and a variety of techniques will be taught to then create items of jewellery from the printed material focusing on cold joining techniques.
