Iron Summer Session 2

Iron Summer Session 2
June 7-19, 2020
Daniel Souto & Stephen Yusko
Material Studies

This workshop will explore inventive uses of material through creative problem solving. Students will work with forged, formed, and fabricated steel to create functional objects and/or sculpture. Techniques will include sheet and hollow forming, tube and pipe forging, hot and cold connections, and pattern and texture development on steel. Through demonstrations and discussions about design and function, we’ll work to create objects that balance the industrial history of steel with gracefulness of form. All levels. Code 02I
