IRON SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Feed the Beast
Make a family of metal sculptures while dealing with the inner beast: The Ego. Are you ready to go beyond making one-off pieces and develop a personal style, but you aren’t sure where to start? I will guide you through each step of finding a unique voice, including concept development, material exploration, and writing an artist statement. We’ll work with hand- and power-hammer forging, cold forming, filing, grinding, etc. The workshop will include demonstrations, individual exercises, discussions, artist talks, and photography sessions. Students will complete five to nine studies and an accompanying statement that should lead to a new body of work. Intermediate/advanced level; basic forging skills required.
