Hard And Soft: Making The Connection

June 14, 2020 – June 20, 2020

Angela Caldwell

Creating connections with textiles and metal can be challenging. In this workshop students will explore ways to combine mixed media and textile elements with traditional metalsmithing techniques. Through samples and small projects, you will experiment with combining sewing, riveting, and other means to creatively assemble various materials. Participants will learn to devise step-by-step instructions to connect your pieces, with a special focus on planning ahead and problem solving. Demonstrations include sawing, soldering and riveting along with knitting, crocheting, felting and embroidery. Historical and contemporary work will be presented to offer inspiration and insight into student’s choice of materials and design. Open to all skill levels, however some experience in metalsmithing and knitting is a plus.
