Metals Summer Session 6
August 9-21, 2020
Flatware with Tessellation
Discover how to move metal using time-honored forging and shell-forming techniques and create handsome copper, brass, or silver flatware adorned with three-dimensional tessellation (patterns created by joining a number of small units). Students can expect to finish two or three pieces, but we’ll emphasize process, experimentation, and developing skills. Techniques and demonstrations will be introduced daily and as needed for individual projects. One-on-one instruction will allow students to explore and problem-solve at their own skill level. Bring your favorite tools, your imagination, and an optivisor, and we’ll all become hammerrific! All levels. Code 06MB
