Tim Tate - The 21st Century Reliquary
Reliquaries enclosing venerated objects and crafted from a wide variety of materials have been important cultural objects for centuries. But what makes a reliquary in the 21st century? What materials are appropriate? What elements might go inside? In this class we will use sheet and found glass, found objects, glass vials, and lost-wax casting to examine methods and techniques for producing our own contemporary reliquaries. All levels.

Aran Galligan - Enameling: Experimental Processes
Whether you are familiar with traditional enameling techniques or new to metalworking, this class will give you something to explore. With a focus on experimentation, we will investigate the many possibilities that enamel has to offer. Some of the techniques we will cover are torch and kiln firing, over and under firing, liquid enamels, sgraffito, and mark making with pencils, rust, and other materials. All levels. Code f01ma

Dan Estabrook - Photography Year Zero
Suppose the Mayans were right? The world has ended, and zombies roam the mountain. It is up to one small band of would-be photographers to wrest truth and beauty from the ashes. With only a few scavenged supplies, we must reinvent photography from the ground up and rebuild the world in our image. We will build cameras from scraps and found objects and make pictures and prints from the most raw materials using a variety of 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century techniques. No photographic experience required, but hand-to-hand combat skills may be useful. All levels. Code f01p
