Metals Spring Concentration
March 6 – April 29, 2022
Let’s take a journey of deep investigation into fabrication and forming techniques, with a detour into lost-wax casting, to develop stronger skills in pursuit of the perfect, odd, and perfectly odd object. Students will engage with individual but guided explorations as they make objects of curiosity–containers, small sculptures, belt buckles, and other specimens–to build our cabinet of wonder. Expect to finish many pieces in these eight weeks while staying open to experimentation and play. All levels.
Note: This workshop takes place in a studio that has stairs that compromise access. It is made partially accessible by a stair lift.
