Metals B Summer Session 1

Metals Summer Session 1
May 29–June 3

No matter how you approach soldering, a seam is present. Although we can learn to disguise and refine–creating the illusion of a seamless surface–there are applications where seams are inevitably visible. But what happens when a solder seam becomes more than just a connection point between two pieces of metal? In this workshop, students will explore the potential of the visible solder seam in hollow form construction. After becoming familiar with the foundations of this method, we’ll throw out the rule book and adapt new ways of thinking and making into your personal studio practice. From beginners to seasoned makers, all are welcome to join in, experiment, and play. All levels. Lower metals studio.
