Fascinating World of Fabrication

September 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018

David Jones

Looking at the history of the studio movement in the U.S. and abroad, students will dive into the beautiful limitless world of metal fabrication. The workshop focuses on traditional and inventive metalsmithing techniques and approaches, while participants create jewelry and smaller scale sculptural items. Techniques presented include sawing, forging, soldering, forming, wire and sheet metal, cold connecting and stamping. There is a strong emphasis on using recycled metals and materials, and advice on where to source these metals. Demonstrations will help build your knowledge and personal narrative. Open to all skill levels, however metalsmithing skills are a plus.




COURSE FEE: $525
