Iron Fall Concentration

October 2 – November 11, 2022
Thomas Campbell
Fabrication: Volume I

This workshop will focus on the fundamentals of steel fabrication with an emphasis on design: both functional and sculptural. We’ll begin with exercises and assignments emphasizing proper fabrication technique, design, critical thinking, and problem solving. We’ll build off of these exercises weekly, establishing a skillset that will support personal exploration. Demonstrations will include, but not be limited to, technical drawing and layout, basic sheet-forming, MIG and TIG welding, grinding, sanding, finish work, and patination. Students will leave with new skills and a thorough understanding of steel fabrication. All levels. Note: This is not a forging workshop.
