The Art of Metal Mesh Sculpture and Basketry
September 16, 2018 – September 22, 2018
Students create biomorphic and geometric sculptural constructions out of metal mesh in this fun workshop. You will explore the myriad of form-making possibilities as you manipulate, cut and connect stainless steel, aluminum and bronze mesh. Demonstrations include unique techniques that students can use in their work, while exploring the fascinating world of “flame painting” by using a propane torch to draw/paint on stainless steel mesh. Participants will also learn wire wrapping and edging techniques and how to incorporate silicone caulk and glass frit into their meshwork designs. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
