Iron Spring Concentration
March 5 – April 28, 2023 (8 Weeks)
Forged and Finished
Participants in this workshop will create objects that balance the industrial history of steel with a gracefulness of form. Building on a solid base of fundamental forging, forming and fabricating techniques, students will expand their visual vocabulary through creative problem solving and by exploring inventive uses of material. Techniques covered will include pattern and texture development, sheet and hollow forming, tube and pipe forging, hot and cold connections and finishing. All levels.
