The Art of Metal Mesh Sculpture and Basketry

October 25, 2020 – October 31, 2020

Lanny Bergner

In this workshop students will create biomorphic and geometric sculptural constructions out of metal mesh. You will discover the myriad of form making possibilities by manipulating, cutting and connecting stainless steel, aluminum and brass mesh. Participants will also explore the world of flame painting by using a propane torch to draw/paint on stainless steel mesh. The techniques covered in class include wire wrapping and edging techniques and how to incorporate silicone caulk and glass frit into your meshwork designs. Open to all skill levels.
