Sculptural Steel

July 26, 2020 – August 1, 2020

Joshua Shorey

If you like machines, sparks, fire and making strong and inexpensive things that last, then this workshop is for you. It will explore industrial steel as a material in sculpture. Students will learn and experiment with the technical and artistic uses of steel, including welding, basic forging, hot bending and cold working techniques. You will use a variety of manual and power tools to shape, connect, grind and finish steel. Participants with an interest in sculpture, furniture making, industrial design, blacksmithing, or automotive crafts will leave class having made large scale, durable and inexpensive structures. Open to all skill levels.


Joshua Shorey is an artist and furniture designer in Knoxville, Tennessee. He earned his MFA in Sculpture from The University of Tennessee in 2017. Shorey owns and operates BAPO Design in Knoxville, a custom furniture and sculpture studio specializing in woodworking, steel fabrication, and precious metal casting.
