In this workshop students will bring with them their incomplete metal projects – this could be jewelry, containers, sculptures, installations… anything rooted in metalsmithing! We will look at the projects as a group and brainstorming the best ways to finish the piece in the strongest, most direct and effective way. Students in this workshop should come open to hear each other’s ideas and receive direction. Students and the instructor will work together to finish each project with technical precision and as a collective group. Techniques covered in this workshop will include basic to advanced metalsmithing skills and whatever is needed to get the job done! Students will leave with at least one finished project that has been nagging at them and a strong community atmosphere.
