Hands, Tools And Tricks
November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020
In this workshop students will focus on traditional and inventive metalsmithing techniques while producing jewelry and small scale objects or sculpture. You will discover the endless possibilities with fabrication being at the heart. Techniques include forming, forging, soldering, sawing, cold connecting, chain making, rings and stamping, and utilization of wire and sheet metal. There will be a strong emphasis on using recycled metals and materials, as well as advice on where to source these materials. Class demonstrations will assist in building your knowledge and personal narrative. Students should arrive with open eyes and willing hands. Open to all skill levels, however basic metalsmithing skills are a plus.
