Iron Summer Session 1

Iron Summer Session 1
May 23 – June 3, 2021
Andrew Kyte 
Distilling Design

In this workshop we’ll condense design ideas into focused sample/study pieces. Students will explore, draw, model, and experiment to produce iron sketches. These sketches will then be edited to establish a clear idea for each student’s final study piece. As we work through this process, we’ll cover a broad range of forging, fabricating, and finishing techniques. And we’ll spend some time each day discussing the work of other artists to inspire ideas. All levels.
