Dancing With Hammers

October 8, 2017 – October 14, 2017

Tom McCarthy

This is an introductory class in metalwork that focuses on forging; the directional stretching of metal with hammers. Forging is an excellent way to include dimension and gesture in your designs. Using techniques from blacksmiths on a smaller scale, students will learn jewelry applications that include rings, bracelets and brooches. You will investigate the rolling mill as an adjunct to the hammer and learn how the various parts of an anvil expand the range of your expression. Students will work in copper and sterling silver. This class is designed for the beginner, but those with prior experience will have plenty to engage them.



COURSE FEE: $525
