What Do You Have To Say For Yourself: Enhancing Narrative In Your Work

October 27, 2019 – November 2, 2019

Robert Dancik

Whether intended or not, the objects you create say something to the user. In this workshop students explore how materials can be combined with traditional and non-traditional metal working techniques to enhance their narrative qualities. You will discover that concrete, polymer clay and thermo-plastics can be joined with found objects, metal, or wood for your creation of jewelry or small sculpture. Cold connections and alternate materials are also covered. Writing a narrative, you want to express with your work before, during and after class can clarify your work to others and to yourself. Open to all skill levels.
