Online Workshop David Clemons

Online Workshop
David H. Clemons
Lidded Pewter Spice Jar

Students will be invited into David’s methodical, nuanced, and refined approach to pewter in this online workshop. A series of eight prerecorded demonstrations will allow participants to follow along step-by-step as David brings together materials and techniques to transform 14-gauge sheet pewter into a dynamic lidded vessel. 

This workshop’s six hours of video lessons give each student the best seat in the house as David covers forming methods, fabrication using soldering and welding, surface treatments and texturing, and finishing techniques—as well as melting, casting, and simple mold construction using cuttlefish! Along the way, students will learn David’s tips, tricks, and strategies for working with this somewhat peculiar but highly responsive and compelling metal.

Sixty days of access to the workshop videos will give participants ample time to watch, re-watch, and follow along with David’s process as they get a feel for working with pewter in their own studios.

This online workshop allows participants to explore at their own pace and is perfect for anyone eager to expand their practice by incorporating pewter work or for those who would like to take a more thoughtful, detailed approach to vessel making. NOTE: This project does not require prior experience, but it does require access to metalsmithing tools.
Suitable for all skill levels.
