Iron Fall Concentration
September 22 – November 15, 2019
Focus on Fabrication
Starting with raw materials, you’ll learn to cut, form, weld, and finish steel as you make functional and/or sculptural objects. We’ll start by working through several projects to get acquainted with the studio and tools. Then we’ll move to more independent work focusing on concept, design, and execution. Techniques will include measuring; layout; cutting with torches, saws, cutoff wheels, and shears; gas, MIG, and TIG welding; finishing; grinding; sanding; filing; patina; paint; and presentation. Guest instructor Mike Rossi will join us for a week of working with multiples. The goal of this workshop is for you to find your aesthetic in steel. All levels. Code F00I
