Metals Summer Session 1
May 23 – June 3, 2021
Make, Think, Discuss, Repeat
Creating work can be isolating, and approaching the bench can sometimes seem daunting. Students in this workshop will approach the studio fresh each day and be challenged to create a daily piece from particular prompts. We’ll combine idea generation, material studies, and technical demonstrations, plus short readings for inspiration and understanding the creative process. Challenges will be set every day, including starting points for exploration, demonstrations of basic techniques and mechanisms, and explorations of traditional and unusual materials. The goal is for students to think beyond their normal working routine and explore the potential they have either forgotten or didn’t realize they had. All levels. Lower metals studio.
