Metals Summer Session 7
August 22-28, 2021
Drawn: The Sensitive Line
Philosopher Alexander Baumgarten described aesthetics as “the science of sensitive knowing.” In that spirit we’ll use simple techniques and direct observation to make structural wire forms. Demonstrations will include soldering steel wire, building symmetrical forms, forging and drawing wire, and finishing steel. Supplemented with short readings, visual presentations, and quick assignments, we’ll make models and samples before creating individual projects. This class is about starting where you are, working without hesitation, and seeing anew. Soldering experience will be helpful, but the workshop is open to all levels. Lower metals studio.
