METALS FALL SHORT SESSION
SEPTEMBER 24 – 29, 2023 (four studio days)
Solder, Rinse, Repeat
Students in this workshop will develop their fabrication skills through the repetitive process of chain-making. Starting with simple links, we’ll explore soldering techniques used to create movable design elements while developing habits for a streamlined workflow. Through design exploration and pattern studies, students will advance to create more complex chain using fabricated sheet and wire. Clasps and other finishing elements will be carefully considered as these can make or break any design. Along with soldering, we’ll cover sawing, filing, and other basic metalsmithing techniques. All levels. Lower metals studio.
